A series of mild winters and relatively low predation have combined to boost Nelchina caribou herd numbers above the fall management objective of 35, to 40, animals. Recent analysis of data from a photo survey conducted in July places the population near last year’s estimate of 48, Portions of four different barren caribou herds winter on or near Tetlin Refuge. The Nelchina Herd (> 30, animals), makes up the majority of caribou that pass through or winter on the Refuge. The Fortymile Herd (> 40, animals) is generally found north of the Refuge during the winter, although occasional individuals are also on Refuge lands.

Analysis of data from a photo survey conducted in July places the population near last . The department’s July post-calving survey estimated the Nelchina herd at approximat caribou, near the lower end of the population objective. Caribou population objectives are based on the number of animals a given range can sustainably support. Too many caribou can over-graze a herd’s range leading to malnutrition or starvation.
