Researchers from three Nordic Centres of Excellence will meet with reindeer herders from Sweden, Norway and Finland to discuss
- which factors are taken into consideration when deciding on practices and application of supplementary feeding;
- what might be the potential consequences of supplementary feeding practices on the future of reindeer husbandry; and
