Untouched Wilderness in America's Northernmost National Park – Gates of the Arctic

Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve is an American national park that protects portions of the Brooks Range in northern Alaska. The park is the northernmost national park in the United States, situated entirely north of the Arctic Circle. The park is the second largest in the US, slightly larger in area than Belgium. Gates of the Arctic was initially designated as a national monument on December 1, 1978, before being redesignated as a national park and preserve upon passage of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act in 1980.
A large part of the park has additional protection as the Gates of the Arctic Wilderness that adjoins the Noatak Wilderness. They form the largest contiguous wilderness in the United States together.
Fauna include brown bears, black bears, muskoxen, moose, Dall sheep, timber wolves, wolverines, coyotes, lynxes, marmots, porcupines, river otters, red and Arctic fox species, beavers, snowshoe hares, muskrats, bald eagles, golden eagles, peregrine falcons, ospreys, great horned and northern hawk-owls. More than half a million caribou, including the Central Arctic, Western Arctic, Teshekpuk, and Porcupine herds, migrate through the central Brooks Range twice yearly, traveling north in summer, and south in winter. Caribou are important as a food source to native peoples. The park is the northernmost range limit for the Dall sheep. About 132 brown bears reside in the park and preserve, based on a density of about one bear per 100 square miles.

    Let’s gather and settle there and create a new way of governing, governed by philosophers! And a fair economic system!! who’s with me?

    How can it be ‘farther north than the Arctic Circle’? lol
    It says the same thing on wiki.
    That’s some weird flat earth shyt.

    37:00 that awkward moment the salmon you’ve been trying to catch turns into an underwater skateboard

  16. LXIX_CDXX on November 21, 2022 at 10:23 am

    The title of this video is erroneous. Though Gates of the Arctic is the northernmost national park in the United States, "America’s Northernmost National Park" is actually Northeast Greenland National Park in Denmark.

  17. Esoterika on November 21, 2022 at 10:23 am

    The narrator’s style is a huge turn-off. I can’t be the only one thinking this.

  18. Zaib Meat on November 21, 2022 at 10:24 am

    Good video’s about pets from Pakistan zaibmeat channel Karachi City

  22. Spoutinwyze on November 21, 2022 at 10:28 am

    ami watching a documentary or a drama? this has the recipe of "scripted reality". so for that reason, "i’m out" (i made it 1 min 32 sec in)

  23. Mushtaq Ahmad on November 21, 2022 at 10:29 am

    Masha Allah very beautiful videos and very nice and very best video

    Your content is misleading. There’s no record of arctic national park on this planet – Ashholes.

  27. wildernessgui on November 21, 2022 at 10:35 am

    In my 30+ years of leading trips and teaching in the Arctic, the time guiding for this project especially stands out.

  28. Judi B. on November 21, 2022 at 10:36 am

    So bears are not awake when their cubs are born?

  29. CrocDoc1 on November 21, 2022 at 10:37 am

    Never been a fan of many wildlife shows’ fascination with animal mating…there is so much else to learn and see. Otherwise, spectacular video; love the bear life!

  30. Edrees Mallick on November 21, 2022 at 10:40 am

    Awesome ❤

    Best goddamn tourism ad I have ever seen.

  33. Zekespeaks on November 21, 2022 at 10:40 am

    From where I sit and what I understand there is a lot of truth in this piece and some absolute BS as well relating to "global warming". Listen with a critical ear and you will hear it.

  34. Blue Ocean on November 21, 2022 at 10:45 am

    Who is the narrator?
    Back in the days I loved In Search Of, Ancient mysteries, etc. It was Leonard Nimoy. Also George Page. Both are gone now.

  35. Çayan Tunç on November 21, 2022 at 10:46 am

    güzel çok güzel

  36. Probinciana in Tokyo on November 21, 2022 at 10:48 am

    That was an absolute treat! 🥰 I savored every minute of it from start to finish.

    Watching it in 65" TV in its glorious high quality makes me feel I am transported inside the documentary itself. How are the people involved able to catch all those details? It’s fascinating.

    If I can give more than a thumbs up I would.

  37. Donal Jewelry on November 21, 2022 at 10:48 am

    😍😍😍😍😍😍

  42. Benjamin Fitzpatrick on November 21, 2022 at 10:52 am

    This was an absolutely breathtaking display of one of the last parts of truly natural beauty left on the earth and the beings that inhabit it. From start to finish I in awe of this documentary, excellent work!

  50. Kathleen Copeland on November 21, 2022 at 11:02 am

    Too bad a documentary has to be ruined by climate change language. I tired of hearing it! The earth has survived and gone through cycled changes since creation. This is one of them!
