A Roosevelt bull takes a bite from a shrub in the Hoh Rain Forest. Ken and Mary Campbell. Roosevelt Elk – Cervus elaphus roosevelti. Identification: Olympic National Park is home to the largest unmanaged herd of Roosevelt elk in the Pacific Northwest.

Named for President Theodore Roosevelt, they are the largest variety of elk in North America. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: 61 pages: illustrations, maps ; 23 cm: Other Titles: Roosevelt elk in Olympic National Park.

Olympic National Park was originally organized to protect the Roosevelt elk and provides both summer and winter habitat for them.

The park houses the largest wild herd of Roosevelt elk left in the Pacific Northwest, which is probably the reason they are also called "Olympic elk.". Olympic National Park drew the attention of a number of presidents in its early days before it received national park status.

In President Grover Cleveland designated part of what is now Olympic National Park as the Olympic Forest Reserve. By the time, Theodore Roosevelt became president, the population of elk in the reserve was decreasing.

InTeddy Roosevelt set aside land on the Olympic Peninsula, designating it the Mount Olympus National Monument (now Olympic National Park) to protect the elk habitat from overhunting. The new monument also protected the rainforests, glaciers and the salmon-filled rivers of the region.

In return, the elk were named after President Roosevelt. This is a very good beginner's primer on the Roosevelt elk in Olympic National Park. The pictures are beautiful of elk at all stages of life. However, it is a slim book written with the average Park visitor in mind, some good tidbits but not alot of meat.3/5(1).

In the 19th century, when Grover Cleveland and Theodore Roosevelt created large federal reserves in the Olympic Mountains, it was primarily to protect elk.

Its geographic range includes temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, extending to parts of northern was introduced to Alaska's Afognak, Kodiak, and Raspberry Islands Class: Mammalia.

Roosevelt’s proclamation of Mount Olympus National Monument referred — perhaps out of modesty — to the protection of the “Olympic Elk” as a rationale for the monument (it did include the animal’s Latin name, Cervus roosevelti), but it ambiguously left open the possibility of.

Roosevelt Elk, named in honor of Theodore Roosevelt, are the largest existing subspecies. Framed by two episodes set during the early s that feature Roosevelt and read as though culled from his journals, the text follows a fictitious elk cow, her calf, and a mature bull through a year in the Olympic Mountains of Washington state.5/5(1).

Olympic National Park is a very unique park located at the northwest corner of the United States in Washington.

Theacres encompass three distinct ecosystems: the wild coastline of the Pacific Ocean, the lush temperate rainforests that intermittently blanket the western river valleys of the Olympic mountains and the mountainous zone topped with massive glaciers covering some parts of.

Roosevelt Elk take their appellation from President Theodore Roosevelt, who created Washington state's Mount Olympus National Monument (now Olympic National Park) on March 2,in large part as an elk preserve.
