Beringia is the name given to the massive land mass that once linked Eurasia to the Americas, allowing plant and animal species to cross continents, including the first humans to arrive in North America. During the last Ice Age, this vast expanse of land remained habitable for a time, giving rise to a unique habitat now known as the Mammoth Steppe where early human beings coexisted with mammoths, steppe bison, Yukon horses and other prehistoric animals that exist no more. Beringia and its unique ecosystem have long fascinated paleontologists and archaeologists as the it has proved to be an invaluable source of information that has helped unveil the answers to the age old questions of evolution. Come explore this mysterious prehistoric world at the Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre where massive dioramas, towering mammoth skeletons and interactive displays tell the tale of this magical world that has for so long remained a source of intrigue.
