  • History:

    Because of the superior insulating power of their thick coats, the pelts of Arctic foxes were historically used by indigenous tribes for clothing. Because of this, the global Arctic fox population number was threatened by over hunting. However, as the fur trade diminished, Arctic fox numbers have successfully rebounded. Currently, they are classified as least concern on the conversation status spectrum, and their population is believed to be steadily increasing.

    Present Status In most areas, population numbers of Arctic foxes are stable. However, in some areas of Scandinavia and Russia, only a handful of Arctic foxes remain. Arctic foxes are found in the Arctic tundra, including Greenland, Iceland, Alaska, extreme Northern Canada, Russia, and Scandinavia. The two biggest threats to Arctic foxes are climate change and the invasion of the more aggressive red fox into the Arctic foxes' territory.
