Fairbanks, Alaska Photo Album
To see caribou/reindeer and musk oxen up close, the University of Alaska Fairbanks' Robert G. White Large Animal Research Station (LARS) is where you want to go. LARS was created in 1979 on 134 acres donated by Mike Yankovich. The plan was to establish a colony of muskoxen that would be available for nutritional, physiological and behavioral research, starting with 16 muskoxen captured on Nunivak Island. Caribou, reindeer and moose were added within the next 3 years but moose were later dropped from the program.
