Since time immemorial, the Porcupine caribou herd has ranged the Arctic in a 2,800-mile annual trekĀ . An adventure story like no other, Being Caribou reveals the drama and beauty of the migration and brings home the enormity of the loss that will surely be felt if drilling goes ahead.

Since time immemorial, the Porcupine caribou herd has ranged the Arctic in a 2,800-mile annual trek between its winter feeding grounds inland and its summer calving grounds on the coastal plain of the Beaufort Sea. In 2003, the caribou were joined on their spring journey, possibly for the first time ever, by two humans: wildlife biologist and writer Karsten Heuer and his wife, filmmaker Leanne Allison. Where the herd once roamed through unpopulated wilderness, it now treks from one country to another.

Being Caribou is a 2005 documentary film that chronicles the travels of husband and wife Karsten Heuer and Leanne Allison following the migration of the Porcupine caribou Herd.

The journey lasted 5 months, starting from the community of Old Crow, Yukon on April 8, 2003 and ending September 8, 2003. The film is produced by the National Film Board of Canada.

Being Caribou : Seven Months on Foot with an Arctic Herd. By (author) Karsten Heuer.

Since time immemorial, the Porcupine caribou herd has ranged the Arctic in a 2,800-mile annual trek between its winter feeding grounds inland and its summer calving grounds on the coastal plain of the Beaufort Sea. In 2003, the caribou were joined on their spring journey, possibly for the first time ever, by two humans: wildlife biologist and writer Karsten Heuer and his wife, filmmaker Leanne Allison.Where the herd once roamed through unpopulated wilderness, it now treks from one country to another. This may well be its downfall, for under its calving grounds lies enough oil to keep the United States going for six months. Nowadays in Washington, that’s considered a lot of oil, enough to justify imperilling this venerable herd. Determined to let the world know what will be lost if drilling takes place, Heuer and Allison accompanied the 123,000-strong Porcupine caribou for five months in an uncharted course over mountain ranges, through deep snow, and across semi-frozen rivers. En route, the heavily pregnant caribou and heavily laden humans alike were stalked by wolves and grizzlies newly awake from hibernation — and ravenous.An adventure story like no other, Being Caribou reveals the drama and beauty of the migration and brings home the enormity of the loss that will surely be felt if drilling goes ahead.From the Hardcover edition.

Very well written account of the migrating caribou. The calving grounds are in the Arctic Wildlife National Refuge. The book and the message is as important now as when it was written. While Canada has protection for caribou - in Yukon, Ivvavik NP but hunting is allowed on the US side. With the proposed opening to oil and gas exploration under the current administration the caribou are in major danger of being the victims as their calving grounds will be right where the drilling will take place - and this could well be the end for them. Read the book and become an activist for preserving wilderness.

Enlightening story. i will never think of the far north in the same way again. beautiful descriptions actually make me want to go there. The complex clash between modern influence and traditional lifestyles brings me to tears. Warning, this book can be very sad.

This is a truly fascinating tale of a husband and wife living in conditions most of us can't begin to even imagine. I will definitely be reading it again. And again.

An interesting and readable book on the artic caribou. It would be nice to have a year or several years of observations to see the whole picture.

Timely given climate change and politics of the day, and yet wonderfully personal...great read.

Great writing about an unusual trip, camping out while traveling with migratory caribou in the Artic. This husband/wife team come frightingly close to grizzlies, not to mention finding themsleves surrounded by the caribou themselves. I hated to end the book; I had come to feel myself along for the trip.

A wonderful reflection on an amazing journey. I enjoyed learning about the annual migration of the caribou, and their sensitivity to disturbance while calving on the Artic Coast. If everyone read this book the debate about drilling for oil in ANWAR might be over for good.
