St. Matthew Island is a remote island in the Bering Sea in Alaska. The entire islandís natural scenery and wildlife is protected as part of Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. In 1944, 29 reindeer were introduced to provide an emergency food source for the Coast Guard. By 1963 there were 6,000 reindeer on the island. An acute shortage of grazing food, and a severe winter wiped out the animals two years later. The image was acquired July 31, 2010, covers an area of 61 by 38 km, and is located at 60.4 degrees north, 172.7 degrees west.
