  • History:

    Although elks primarily live in forest regions throughout Asia and North America, their ability to adapt to different areas has allowed them to also inhabit semi-desert and mountainous regions. It’s believed that in North America alone there are over 2 million elk, classifying them as an animal of least concern. However, prior to the European colonization of America there were over 10 million elk present.

    Present History Currently, about 1 million elk live in North America. They have lived in the West for quite awhile, and in recent years, wildlife management have successfully reintroduced elk to Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and North Carolina, among other states. Although elk will never have the population numbers that they did in the past, they are doing well and are not endangered.
