The Arctic is a severe landscape and the animals that live in this unique environment have adapted themselves to survive in this short summer/ harsh winter climate. The abundance of wildlife per square mile is less in this high latitude, but the species that do live here are all impressive in their own right. Wolves, caribou, sheep, muskox, moose, and many birds can be seen along the Dalton Highway between Wiseman and the Arctic Ocean.
