Land Mammals
Polar Bears
Polar Bears

An abundance of small and large mammals are also found on the Coast. Unless you travel inland, you are unlikely to encounter caribou or moose. Black bears are not common but occasionally pay unwanted visits to residents’ cabins. Polar bears are becoming more common in the spring. They arrive here on ice floes, and then quickly return back to the North.  Common fur-bearing mammals along the Coast include arctic fox, red fox, marten, mink, muskrat, beaver, weasel and red squirrel.
