Arctic Wildlife


Here are all the animals we have in Kaktovik: caribou, ptarmigan, whales, brown bear, porcupine, rams, sheep, moose, ducks, eagles, polar bear (nanuq), bowhead whales, beluga, seals, walrus, ring seals, Arctic foxes, red fox, wolves, wolverines, seagulls, snow owl, weasel, musk ox, squirrels, lemmings, minnows, hawks, and crows.
We hunt ducks, caribou, ptarmigan, moose, sheep, seals, walrus, bowhead whales, reindeer, fish and musk ox.
The polar bears come to the village and eat at the whale bone pile and sometimes they come to the village and eat other people's meat. Sometimes the polar bears break into people's houses. Because of the polar bear problem we put up posters all around the village.

Thanks for the great information about your part of Alaska. The days of the whale hunts must be exciting times in Kaktovik.

I'm looking forward to more entries in your blog.
