The condition of wild reindeer in six out of ten national wild reindeer areas is not in line with the goals that have not been set by the Norwegian government.
“The alarm is literally at the red level for the wild reindeer in Norway and thus the remaining wild reindeer population in Europe,” Ellen Hambro, director of the Norwegian Environment Agency, warned.
The condition of the wild reindeer in Knutshø, Snøhetta, Rondane, Nordfjella, Hardangervidda, and Setesdal Ryfylke is not in line with the goals set by the government, according to a new report from the Norwegian Environment Agency, prepared by the Norwegian Institute for Natural Research.
“Measures need to be implemented urgently. Good cooperation and good participation from local and regional authorities, sector interest organizations, and users will now be crucial in the work of developing good action plans to improve the situation for wild reindeer,” Hambro added.
