The Swedish Arctic fox project (Fjällrävsprojektet) is a research group in ecology at Stockholm University who study the demography and genetics of the arctic fox as well as its interactions with other species in the mountain tundra ecosystem. The Swedish Arctic Fox Project is funded by research grants, funds form companies and private individuals besides being part of larger EU projects. Examples of such EU projects were Felles fjellrev I and II which was a conservation and monitoring program in colaboration with the county board administration in Jämtland, Västerbotten, the countys of Sør Trøndelag, Nord Trøndelag and Nordland as well as Norsk institutt for naturforskning (NINA) the Norwegian Environment Agency and the World wildlife fund, WWF.
