In the early 1900-ies in Finland extinct forest deer, the population was able to recover thanks to their import and breeding in captivity. About it reports a press-service of the European Commission in Facebook.

It is noted that the project to restore the deer population was funded by the EU, and now thanks to him, in Finland there are about 2 thousand species of these animals.

“This ensures that the reindeer will not disappear again: the goal of the project is to increase the number of deer and have their greater genetic diversity in Finland and Sweden,” said the European Commission.
