Video: Zarembo Island Elk
US Forest Service employee Jackie de Montigny shot a video of this herd of about 17 elk near St John’s Creek, Zarembo Island, on Friday 03/29/2019. Elk are not native to Alaska. In 1987, 33 Roosevelt elk and 17 Rocky Mountain elk were captured in Oregon and moved to Etolin Island (near Wrangell in SE Alaska). These elk subsequently dispersed and swam to nearby Zarembo Island, establishing a breeding population that became the progenators of this herd.
