Teshekpuk Lake is located on the North Slope of Alaska and is one of the most ecologically important wetlands in the entire Arctic. This sensitive area provides habitat for tens of thousands of molting geese, threatened species like the Spectacled Eider, and the 45,000-head Teshekpuk Lake Caribou Herd. This video was sponsored by Audubon Alaska and the Wildlife Conservation Society, in cooperation with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
