Porcupine caribou mother and calf, by Peter Mather

Every year, the Porcupine caribou herd embarks on the longest land mammal migration in the world, covering over 2400 kilometers from the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and into Alaska. This incredible journey takes them through what is still a significantly intact landscape of the Arctic.

Take Action!

Over 2,500 of you signed our letter telling the U.S. Government that drilling has no place in the Arctic Refuge. Currently we are waiting on the release of a final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) where alternative development scenarios are being considered, one which (almost) fully protects the Porcupine Caribou Herd’s calving grounds from development. Stay tuned!

You can also support the Arctic Refuge and the Porcupine Caribou by talking about the Arctic Refuge; share a post, tell your friends, tweet about it.
