Carpe

Carpe (m)

Born: 7/27/2011
Litter: Freight

Carpe is also half Siberian, half Alaskan husky. He has boundless energy and always wants attention. He found a way to get attention from every summer visitor by standing on his hind legs and doing a funny dance. The crowds love it! Carpe also uses his dance to try to get his dinner sooner, get picked to be in the team, get anything else he wants. He is a charmer and he knows it!

Recent climate warming has affected Denali in ways that are readily apparent, such as reduced spring snowfall, earlier snowmelt, earlier green-up and thawing of permanent snowfields. Subarctic ecosystems, like Denali, are extremely sensitive to climate variability and change.
