THE MOST NORTHERN DEER – CAN IT COPE IN A WARMING CLIMATE?
Reindeer are incredibly adapted to withstand snow and cold. They dig through piles of snow and find enough food to survive long winters. But the snow is changing due to climate change. It can form thick ice crusts that the reindeer cannot dig through. Summers are also getting warmer and wetter. Will the reindeer cope?
In this webinar, you will learn about animal physiology and the adaptations of deer to living in northern climates. We will look the challenges reindeer face due to climate changes, and what science can tell us about how it will survive.
