Fox is one of the dominant predators in the far north. Some
populations have been designated as threatened or endangered, while others
appear to be more healthy; however, some aspects of their ecology remain
far from fully understood. MRF is considering integrating the Arctic
Fox into its study of Arctic carnivores, and will post a full profile here
if it is selected for research.
