Reindeer, People, Pastures

Welcome to the world of reindeer husbandry. A project of the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry and the Association of World Reindeer Herders (Assn WRH). This site will take you on a circum-Arctic tour of reindeer and people, a connection that is strong, ancient and profound. From the New World reindeer herding in Alaska, all the way around Eurasia, Mongolia and northern China, the world of Reindeer husbandry encompasses a wide diversity of peoples, languages, landscapes and cultures.

However, the livelihood is in essence, practiced in remarkably similar ways, speaking to a bond between people and reindeer that holds much wisdom about how to survive and thrive in some of the most inhospitable places on Earth. Need a beginners guide to reindeer husbandry? Start Here
