Arctic Ungulate Society

The Arctic Ungulate Society was founded in 1999 with the aim to foster studies of Arctic Ungulates, particularly reindeer/caribou and muskoxen, through the continuation of the quadrannual Arctic Ungulate Conference (AUC). The Next Arctic Ungulate Conferense (16th) has just been held in Anchorage, Alaska (May 2023). At the meeting, professor Steeve Côté, Université Laval, Canada (steeve.cote(at) was elected as new president for AUS. Other members: See "Committee"

16th Arctic Ungulate Conference, Anchorage, 8-12 May 2023

The joint meeting of the North American Caribou Workshop and Arctic Ungulate Conference was held in Anchorage, Alaska, USA, 8-12 May 2023.

The conference theme was Crossing Boundaries, bringing together an international group of managers, researchers, Indigenous and Local Knowledge holders, and other interested parties who want to share their knowledge of caribou, muskoxen, Dall sheep, moose, and reindeer.. Arctic ungulates cross landscape boundaries, connecting ecological processes between different systems, and requiring partnerships and collaboration across management and national boundaries. A critical component of such partnerships involves crossing the boundaries of Western and Indigenous ways of knowing to identify creative opportunities to steward and sustain arctic ungulate populations in a changing world.
