THE ARCTIC NEWS

Climate change: Lapland reindeer gone astray in search for food

Herders in Lapland are struggling to locate thousands of reindeer that have run away after warm weather left the food they graze on covered by a layer of ice.

Some reindeer have travelled as far as 100km to the south, in search of ice-free lichen they can access under the snow.

Herders are having to track them through the forests of northern Finland and Sweden, some even using helicopters.

Scientists say the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world as a result of climate change - though new research suggests that could be an underestimate.

The layer of ice is said to form when an early snowfall melts, or is followed by rain, creating wet snow, which then freezes to a hard layer of ice when temperatures drop.

"Reindeer cannot dig the ice as it is hard and so they move away in search of ground where there is just snow that they can remove easily and eat up the lichen below," a senior scientist with Finland's Natural Resources Institute says.
