The muskox centre in Härjedalen is a non-profit organisation, and our main purpose is to preserve the wild muskox population in Härjedalen by reducing disturbance and stress on the animals in the area, and spreading knowledge and awareness.
We’ve also been able to place one of the animals from the centre in the wild herd in the mountains of Härjedalen. Her name is Idun, and thanks to her there´s been new calves born in the wild herd. By breeding muskox we help zoo’s get a wider variation of genetics in their muskox.
By visiting the muskox centre you´re ensuring you’ll have a nature experience unlike any other. You are also directly contributing to our important work with the muskox, in regards to research, breeding and spreading awareness.
