Muskox on the North Slope (Geoff Carroll)

Video Shot in: 2009

Wildlife biologist Geoff Carroll recounts the story of muskoxen in Alaska. Eradicated in the 1800s, they were reintroduced in the 1930s, and the population grew rapidly but faced predation and health issues, leading to a decline from 800 to 200 animals today. Efforts are underway to understand and protect this unique creature crucial to Alaska’s ecosystem.
