Large reindeer (Rangifer Tarandus) during herding, Finnmark, Norway
Large-scale climate changes in the Arctic may influence the foraging conditions for reindeer. Reindeer herders in the Northern Hemisphere rely on green, herb plants in summer and pastures with little snow and access to lichens (a moss-like organism that grows under very adverse conditions) in winter.
