Don't Forget the Carrot Snacks

When you're setting out milk and cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve, be sure to include a handful of carrot snacks for the reindeer as well. Santa's reindeer have a long way to travel, and they need to keep up their strength!

Record Your Observations

Because relatively little has been documented about this rare subspecies, Department researchers encourage you to report your observations. Keep a sharp eye and ear out and if you can document a sighting or any sign (tracks, scat, signs of foraging), email us at

We're also looking for help with other crowd-sourced science projects. Please visit our citizen science page for more information on how you can get involved.
