To further develop and promote the production of reindeer in the state of Alaska through research and collaboration with producers and local communities.
Since its establishment in 1981, the Reindeer Research Program has taken an active role in the development and promotion of the Alaskan reindeer industry. Our research projects run the gamut, ranging from herd management and animal health to nutrition and meat quality. What all of our projects have in common is their direct applicability to reindeer herders and producers. For detailed information regarding past and present projects, visit our research page.
In addition to our research projects, we are heavily involved in outreach activities, both to the reindeer producers and to the community. For more information, check out these pages: Unique Production Topics & Educational Outreach.
