Diverse Life Within The High Arctic

 Coming around the corner from where we left off yesterday is this view, with some of the larger animals of the Arctic on display.


The diversity of life in the Arctic is examined in panels, photographs, and specimens.


Here is a Snow Goose.


Some more of the birds of the Arctic.


Here we have an adult and calf pair of muskoxen.


The Arctic Hare, seen here in summer and winter coats, changes by the season.
