Our Museum...

The Arctic Fox Centre holds the world’s only exhibition dedicated to Iceland’s first land mammal, the Arctic Fox. Our exhibition and staff will educate you on Arctic foxes, their biology, habits and habitats which make them such an incredible animal. We also have displays on the traditional and cultural interaction between humans and foxes as well as their modern day influence on Iceland and Icelanders.

 

Our Research...

During the summer months of June, July and August we monitor the wild fox populations on the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, which has been an ongoing project since 1998.

Our main research is the data collection of hunted fox carcasses, donated to the centre by fox hunters from all over the country we record size, age, sex, stomach contents, pup births and many other variables.

Live Arctic Fox Ambassador Animals

Here at the Arctic Fox Centre we have 2 live Arctic foxes who act as our ambassadors for the species :-)
They were found after their parents had been killed as part of the legalised arctic fox hunt which takes place here in Iceland in June 2015. SInce then they have been raised by us to be human friendly captive foxes able to spark an iteserest in their species to all of our visitors :-)
Their names are Ingi and Móri and they are both blue morph males
