Idaho Scholarship

Idaho Winner РJordan Merz

Hi,

My name is Courage. I’m a Woodland Selkirk Mountain Caribou. My mom named me Courage because she says that I’m so brave! I help protect our family from bears, wolves and cougars.

During the winter months my dad and I lead our herd up into the mountains in northern Idaho to avoid the predators. We survive all winter by eating the lichens that grow on tree bark. It’s easy for us to walk around in the deep snow high up in those mountains because we have large concave hooves. It’s like walking around in snowshoes!

Herds of caribou used to live in Idaho, but now there are only a few of us left in this area.

Thank you for caring about me!

Courage
