National Petroleum Reserve Alaska photos
Location in Alaska
The National Petroleum Reserve Alaska (or NPR-A) is a monstrous 23 million-acre region located north of the Brooks Range, mainly on Alaska’s Arctic North Slope. It was initially set aside by President Harding as an emergency oil supply for the US Navy.
The average person knows little about the region, and it is enormous. It is a land rich in wildlife and serves as a critical habitat for the Western Arctic Caribou Herd, which fluctuates in population between 200-400 thousand animals. All the National Petroleum Reserve Alaska photos are available for purchase as stock photography or fine art prints to display in your home or office.
