Chukchi Peninsula tundra

WWF Abstract

Millions of sea birds stop on the Chukotka Peninsula during their annual migrations. Here, tall mountains give way to low coastal plains along the Bering Strait, forming a unique ecoregion with a diversity of plants and animals. The climate here is not as cold as you might think, thanks to the moderating influence of the Bering and Chukchi Seas. Temperatures are mild for its latitude and proximity to the Arctic, ranging from a minimum of –4˚ F (–20˚ C) in winter to a maximum of 68˚ F (20˚ C) in summer.
