Poaching

 

Poaching is a major challenge in parts of Russia, especially in areas close to roads, urban areas, or fly in worker camps. There are few avenues for compensation. Wild reindeer herds constitute a major threat to the maintenance of a domestic reindeer husbandry in many regions, including Alaska, Sakha (Yakutia), Chukotka, Taimyr, Canada and Greenland. When wild and domestic herds mix, it is almost impossible to recover the domesticated animals.
