Caribou walking along coastal habitat

Detailed Description

Adult female caribou in the Porcupine herd equipped with a GPS-enabled video camera collar that shows the caribou’s point-of-view as she tries to avoid insect harassment by seeking non-vegetated, coastal habitat within the Yukon coastal plain. This video was collected in collaboration with the Yukon Government as part of a study on the influence of summer habitat conditions on the movements, activities, and foraging behaviors of the Porcupine caribou herd.
