Nuiqsut Caribou Subsistence Monitoring (2009-2021)

The Nuiqsut Caribou Monitoring Project was based on research conducted by Stephen R. Braund & Associates (SRB&A) under contract to ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc. (COP). It was intended to document impacts of CD4 and other COP satellite developments on Nuiqsut residents’ caribou hunting activities. These reports summarize data collected during fieldwork that was conducted for year 1 (2008) through year 13 (2020).

The monitoring project was an ongoing, multiyear program meant to measure impacts and changes over time. The study was initiated in response to a North Slope Borough (NSB) permit stipulation for the CD4 project. At the end of 10 years of the study, the stipulation indicated that the NSB and COP would review the need for future research.

These reports document the multi-year caribou subsistence monitoring for Nuiqsut including hunter interviews. The intent of the project is to assemble data on impacts on caribou subsistence uses in order to work toward a common understanding of these impacts by the community of Nuiqsut, industry, and government oversight agencies.
