Many caribou in this area winter on Prince Patrick Island and move in spring to Eglinton, Emerald, Melville and Byam Martin islands for the summer. Other caribou in the area have also been observed moving between islands. This management unit has undergone two large crashes and recoveries over the more than forty years of surveys of the population. Some forecasts suggest that the caribou in this area are likely to be the most resilient of all the Peary caribou to current and future climate change.
