One of our biggest challenges is finding a way to share the Noatak experience with those who do not have the opportunity to visit the park in person. In addition to the galleries below, we have a Flickr site, to extend the virtual preserve boundary to encompass all those who love and support our national parks, wherever they may be. Any visitor who would like to volunteer a sample of a trip to Noatak National Preserve is encouraged to visit our Flickr site to post photos, video clips and journal entries to share with others.




Running Herd… on Fieldwork in the Western Arctic National Parklands is a blog highlighting some of the work being done by archaeologists, wildlife biologists, ecologists, and rangers in northwest Alaska's Noatak National Preserve, Bering Land Bridge National Preserve, Kobuk Valley National Park, and Cape Krusenstern National Monument.

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.
