Along with many other nonprofits, our last few weeks have been dominated by COVID-19 emergency meetings & contingency planning, while frantically building up our online infrastructure to maintain our communications and educational outreach with our local, national and international communities.


We want you all to know that the health and safety of our musk oxen continues to be our top priority, along with the health and safety of our staff during these unprecedented times we've all found ourselves in.


We are going to work hard to keep you - our incredible followers, supporters, musk ox cheerleaders - connected to our farm and those muskies you've all fallen in love with as best as we possibly can! We hope to be a beacon in the darkness, sharing the incredible animals that have certainly brought perspective and brief moments of peace to us during these uncertain days. We can draw from their strength and their unparalleled ability to survive and thrive in the harshest of environments.


Our team here truly is like a family, and we know that with our combined strength, skills, and love for each other and all 80 of our musk oxen out there, we will pull through this. There has never been such a thing as a 'normal' day on the Musk Ox Farm, which we'd like to think helps our resiliency - something we'll be leaning on heavily in the days and weeks to come. We hope that you'll continue to support us and follow us on this wild ride.


Be well, be safe, be sane, and most importantly -be musk ox strong.
