'Cold Water Crossing'

Copyright notice

This remarkable photo taken by photographer Chris Crowley of a barrenground caribou cow & calf crossing a remote Arctic river was taken
during our special 'Great Summer Caribou Migration' tour in the Canadian Far North.
Caribou calves will begin to stand and walk on their own
only a day or two after birth - during which time they are very vunerable to predators such as wolves and bears.
After just stalling for a week
or two, during which time the calves build their strength, the southbound migration begins. Calves like this often struggle to keep up, and
if they fall too far behind will often fall prey to predators or the harsh elements.
