Barren Ground Caribou Grazing Alaska Oilfields

A pair of Barren Ground Caribou spend time grazing on the dry tundra near the Prudhoe Bay Oilfields in Alaska, USA.

Two Barren Ground Caribou have found a good patch of tundra for grazing near the Prudhoe Bay Oilfields along the coastline of the Beaufort Sea in Alaska, USA. The oilfields are the largest throughout the United States and North America covering approximately 213,543 acres leaving plenty of room for the Barren Ground Caribou to roam.

During the summer months, the coat on the caribou remains brown in coloring which blends in with the landscape, but as winter nears, their coats will become much lighter in color. Both of these Barren Ground Caribou have a full rack of antlers which both the males and females have.
