Refuge Highlights

A Land of Extremes

winter_300x199 Homepage

Climate at Kanuti is defined by dramatic seasonal extremes of temperature and light. In June and July, temperatures can exceed 90 degrees F. This warmth, combined with 24 hours of daylight, stimulates growth and activity. During the long winter, temperatures can drop to minus 70 degrees F and the prolonged darkness keeps a tight grip on activities.
