groupnarjan_marA Centre for Reindeer Husbandry has been proposed by Igor Fedorov, the Governor of the Nenets Autonomus Okrug subsequent to an EALAT Information seminar and tundra workshop that was held in Naryan-Mar last week. Such a center, according to Fedorov, would be very useful as reindeer were severely impacted in the 1990's and the loss of livestock has not yet been restored. The Governor went on to state in the news release that Reindeer enterprises are major employers for residents of the rural villages and provide employment for more than 12 per cent of people working in the district, half of whom are indigenous people. The EALAT Information workshop participants welcomed this message and it was decided that this new centre be established in close cooperation with the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry.

ungulatesThe Arctic Ungulate Conference (AUC) is an international conference held every four years. Yellowknife will be your host for the next AUC in August 2011. The theme of the conference – Challenges of Managing Northern Ungulates – will address the difficulties of managing ungulate populations that are faced with the unpredictable effects of climate change and an ever-increasing human presence on the land. The conference will also focus on the challenges associated with developing recovery actions for declining caribou and reindeer populations that are an integral part of Aboriginal cultures and ways of life.

This conference will provide an excellent opportunity for biologists, managers, Aboriginal groups, co-management boards, researchers, students and resource users to discuss northern ungulate research and management with their circumpolar peers. A number of topics and sessions are under consideration:
