WILDLIFE

As a result of its size and undisturbed landscape, the Peel is home to diverse populations of wildlife.   From deer, fox, moose, dall sheep, and Collard Lemming—a species which only exists in Canada in the Ogilvie Mountain Range.

The watershed is also home to Yukon’s largest herd of woodland caribou and acts as the wintering-grounds for the Porcupine Caribou Herd, one of the largest in the world.

Additionally, because of the relative abundance of all of these animals, their predators also thrive—there are healthy populations of wolves, grizzlies, black bears, wolverines and birds of prey.

The filming of this documentary coincides with the mating season for moose, and they will be in abundance.
