Musk ox

Musk ox are the last animals we reintroduced so far. They arrived to the Park in September 2010. These animals were brought from the Wrangel Island. Next year we plan to bring several more seasons.

Comparing with Wrangel island food base in the Park is very good for musk ox. So far they are doing well and show no signs on body weight loss. Right now they are kept in a small 50 ha fenced area to keep track of there behavior and conditions.

Most suitable to travel on the island is on the ATV or on 8 wheel drive Argo. We searched for animals on this vehicles. In the picture can be seen cart with cages on it. It can fit two animals
