Hu­man de­vel­op­ments

World of Animals - - All About Reindeer -

De­for­esta­tion and the con­struc­tion of roads can leave rein­deer pop­u­la­tions frag­mented and vul­ner­a­ble to preda­tors. Other land­scape changes, such as min­ing and quar­ry­ing and the devel­op­ment of en­ergy plants and tourist re­sorts can cre­ate bar­ri­ers to the rein­deer’s mi­gra­tion and cut off for­ag­ing sites.
