North Slope Moose Populations 1985-2001

During the early 1900's moose were rare on the Alaskan north slope (that portion of Alaska that is north of the Brooks Range mountains). Moose gradually increased and peaked in the late 1980's. In 1985 biologists of the Arctic Refuge began to monitor north slope moose by conducting aerial counts during late fall when there is good snow cover, making moose easier to spot. The report represents total moose counted in the area of the north slope between the Dalton Highway and the Canning River.
