Few animals make Pingo Canadian Landmark their permanent home. However, many species take advantage of its varied habitats for short periods of time. It is not unusual to see caribou grazing at the base of a pingo or a grizzly bear wandering through the area in search of berries in autumn. On rare occasions in winter, a polar bear may pass through the landmark as it follows the coastline.
