Climate change is increasing the rate of icing events (rain-on-snow), which prevent reindeer from accessing lichens, their main/only winter food source. When icing occurs, reindeer can only survive by moving to ice-free areas. It is therefore crucial to allow reindeer to move, and mitigate habitat fragmentation. Photo: wild reindeer.
