Rare aboriginal reindeer spotted in Russian Arctic national park

Scientists believed that these animals disappeared in their original form.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. For the first time this year, a group of a unique Novaya Zemlya subspecies of wild reindeer, which is listed in the Red Book of the Russian Federation, was photographed in the Russian Arctic national park.

Previously, scientists believed for a long time that the indigenous deer subspecies assimilated with imported animals and ceased to exist in its original form. According to the press service of the park, in 2014, at the cape Zhelaniya, researchers noticed several individuals of the native Novaya Zemlya deer. In 2021, scientists photographed three female deer of an unusual white color from a helicopter.

Photos taken this year suggest that the number of animals in the national park is gradually increasing and requires closer research.

Previously, scientists found that reindeer in Taimyr changed their migration routes. Animals go to the forests of Evenkia.
