Did You Know?

27 caribou, with tails held high, leave a gravel bar to splash and swim across a blue river on a fall day.

The Western Arctic caribou herd is comprised of about 370,000 caribou, making it North America’s largest. These “nomads of the north” travel through Noatak National Preserve twice a year during their long trek between southern wintering areas and northern calving grounds.
