This herd needs the Arctic Refuge

The Porcupine Caribou Herd is international by birth, by travel, by lifestyle. It belongs to no country — and to every country. The existence of an unconstrained wilderness herd, together with the people who — for tens of thousands of years — have depended on it, enriches our understanding of how animals and humans can work together. But, the existence of this magnificent herd is now in danger, because the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is in danger. The Porcupine Caribou Herd needs the Arctic Refuge. The Porcupine Caribou Herd needs us.

Be the voice of the caribou.

A migratory mammal

The Porcupine Caribou herd migrates vast distances each year, usually between Alaska and Yukon’s Arctic coast in the spring and the Yukon’s Ogilvie Mountains in winter. Its range is one of the largest of any land mammal on earth. Each spring the herd migrates from all parts of the range to Alaska’s Arctic coast where new calves are born and then disperses again throughout its traditional range.
