Rebecca Sentner of Alaska Audubon wrote of her visit the ANWR. “I have never seen a place so full of life….the number of amazing birds we saw was overwhelming.” Many of the birds of the refuge migrate to and from all fifty states and six continents to feed and reproduce, taking advantage of the burst of biological growth which blossoms there in the long days of the Arctic summer. The American Golden Plover, a declining species occasionally spotted in New England, migrates many thousands of miles every year from its nesting grounds on the Arctic tundra to the southern tip of South America.
