Protect the Wild Reindeer Herds

 

Wild populations of reindeer in North America remain only in Canada, Alaska, Washington and northern Idaho. Herds in north-eastern Alaska, north-western Canada and Central Arctic are potentially threatened by onshore petroleum exploration and development, which displaces calving and leads to increased calf mortality.


In Europe, wild populations have a fragmented distribution in Norway, Finland and Russia. Poaching is a major threat in the Russian Federation. Reindeer may also be threatened by loss of habitat in Finland and increased disturbance in some areas due to winter sports.


We ask that you set up an Artic nature reserve where poaching and oil drilling are banned.
