“The permafrost melting process can be stopped if to use the Saha Republic 30 years’ experience result. Earlier, bison, horses and camels were brought there. They took root and gave scientists many reasons for thinking”, Gazeta.Ru quoted scientists.
The specialists explained that in the place where camels live, the air temperature is five to six degrees lower than in a similar territory without these animals.
