Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain
The birthing grounds of the Porcupine River caribou herd, the 1.5 million acres of the Refuge Coastal Plain extend south from the Arctic Ocean between 40 and 50 miles, rising into the Romanzof Mountains on the east and the Sadlerochit Mountains on the west. The Coastal Plain near the Arctic Ocean is a denning area for polar bears during the winter. It also contains an abandoned Distant Early Warning (DEW) site at Collinson Point.
