To get a better understanding of the distribution of foxes and dens in the Queen Maud Gulf Bird Sanctuary, we did a hike from Karrak Lake to Perry River at the coast of the Queen Maud Gulf (100 km NW of Karrak Lake). Our objective was to use Program Distance to estimate the density of foxes and fox dens in the Karrak Lake-Perry River area. Unfortunately, we saw only two foxes and one den along the way so we were not able to get reliable estimates of distribution of foxes and fox dens. The hike did, however, help us to get a better understanding of the landscape in the Queen Maud Gulf Bird Sanctuary.
The hike took us through some beautiful parts of the Queen Maud Gulf Bird Sanctuary and we have provided some pictures below to illustrate some of the things we saw along the way.
