The Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi) is a subspecies of caribou found in the High Arctic islands of Nunavut and the Northwest Territories in Canada. They are the smallest of the North American caribou, with the females weighing an average of 60 kg (130 lb) and the males 110 kg (240 lb). In length the females average 1.4 m (4 ft 7 in) and the males 1.7 m (5 ft 7 in) Peary Caribou have denser coats than the other caribou subspecies in Canada, which helps them survive the Arctic winter. Their fur is creamy-white in winter and by spring, the coat is short and dark. Their faces are short and blunt and their hooves are quite wide, creating a sort of 'snowshoe' that helps them to walk with ease during the winter Peary caribou are distinct from barren-ground caribou and no intermediate forms are recognizable at the subspecies level. Nevertheless, phenotypic and genotypic variations have been documented among the populations discussed in this report and the conservation of this diversity should be a primary goal of conservation and management . Like Dolphin and Union Caribou, Peary Caribou have a mostly white coat in winter, and are slate-grey with white legs and under-parts in summer.The velvet covering their antlers is grey. Weight: Males, 70 kg (150 lb)

Unable to eat, Peary caribou in recent years have starved.

The barren-ground caribou can be found in the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. (map) DESCRIPTION The barren-ground caribou has a dark brown face with white around the nose
Caribou are better adapted to cold than to warmer, moister weather. Peary caribou have been particularly hard hit by weather-related events.

Peary caribou were first described by Allen (1902) based on specimens brought back from Ellesmere Island by Commander R. E. Peary. It was, however, recognized as a distinct form of Rangifer as early as 1787 by Thomas Pennant (in Glover 1960). who described pelts probably from Victoria Island, traded by Indians .

Peary caribou (mammal) are the smallest of all caribou subspecies, with females weighing around 60 kg and the males 110 kg. Their length goes from 1.4 m to 1.7m. The coat of the caribou is white and thick in the winter, but in the summer it becomes short and darker, almost slate-grey in colour An aerial population survey of Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi) and muskoxen (Ovibus moschatus) on Victoria Island, Northwest Territories, was conducted in July 2010.

Of the caribou groups with calves, 55% of those one year or more old, and 59% of the calves of the year, were found in the high-population-density areas, which represented only 14.2% of the total area (Table 1) Summer Habitat Use by Muskoxen (Ovibos mosthaius) and Peary Caribou (Rangifer iarandus pearyO in the Canadian High Arctic By G. R. Parker and R. K. Ross' Summary: Summer dai ly activity and movement patterns end habttut selectivity by Peary caribou (Ranqiie Among Peary caribou, only certain individuals can take off and fly for any length of time. Why? Apparently, only one pattern of antler allows for extended flight, says one naturalist. This one complex configuration creates a vortex of wind at high speeds. The perfect rack acts as a big mainsail, lifting the beast heavenward.
For Peary caribou, a temporal and spatial shift in sea-ice extent may be adversely critical. Some caribou show fidelity to wintering and calving grounds with access based on inter-island migrations associated with land-fast sea ice [10,15] Sea ice has thus been an effective corridor for Peary caribou, promoting inter-island connectivity and population mixing. Using a time series of remote sensing sea-ice data, we show that landscape resistance in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago has increased by approximately 15% since 1979 and may further increase by 20-77% by 2086 under a high-emission scenario (RCP8.5) Peary Caribou. The present reduced state of Peary caribou (a small, white sub-species found only in West Greenland and Canada's arctic islands) is serious enough that a number of communities have limited and even banned their subsistence harvests of the species. The number of Peary caribou on Canada's arctic islands dropped from 26 000 in 1961. estimate Peary Caribou abundance throughout the Canadian Arctic. There has been no single year when the entire range has been surveyed. The current population of Peary Caribou is estimated at about 13,200 mature individuals. In the early 1960s, when the first population counts were made, there were ca. 50,000 Peary Caribou.

Without rigorous greenhouse gas emission reductions our projections indicate that by 2100 all connectivity between the more southern Peary caribou populations will be lost for important spring and early-winter movement periods This indicator reports on the status of Peary caribou, a key species at risk, in NWT Arctic ecosystems. It also tracks changes in muskox populations, the only other large herbivore sharing the Peary caribou range. This indicator sheds light on the low carrying capacity of the NWT's most northern ecosystems and the potential effects of changing climate on the recovery of
