The Musk Ox Development Corporation (MODC), a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, is dedicated to the domestication of the musk ox and to the promotion of qiviut production as a gentle and sustainable agricultural practice in the Far North, with a focus on public education and providing additional income opportunities to Alaska Natives.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Our community is the heart and soul of the world's largest captive herd of musk oxen. For over 50 years, we have been striving to bring geographically appropriate gentle and sustainable agriculture to the far north. We have built this project on the strong backs and soft underwool, qiviut, of these magnificent ice age survivors. Pick.Click.Give. helps our many supporters, friends, and family connect with and contribute to the ongoing excellent health and welfare for these amazing animals and our hometown project that is uniquely one of a kind in the entire world.
