For over 25 years, Arctic foxes have not bred in Finland — until now

This summer, Arctic fox nesting inspections revealed the species to have successfully bred in the Enontekiö mountainous area. This is the first time in over 25 years the Arctic fox has successfully bred in Finland. Such great news to celebrate! ”The results of long-term conservation work over the past 20 years are now becoming visible," said Specialist Tuomo Ollila from National Parks Finland, which is the authority responsible for the Arctic fox conservation in Finland. The Arctic fox is a critically endangered species in Finland. At the beginning of the 2000s, the entire Nordic Arctic fox population hit an all-time low, with approximately 100 adult individuals. Currently, an estimated 450 adult Arctic foxes live in Norway, Sweden, and Finland. "It is unique to see the return of a species that has disappeared from Finland’s breeding species for decades," said Petteri Tolvanen, WWF program manager. "What is even more surprising, is that it returns at a time like this when climate change is progressing in the northern regions even faster than anticipated. Global warming and its consequences are the greatest threat to the Arctic fox, in the long term." Read more:

        The beauty and diversity of Earth's nature is astounding. Thousands of creatures, millions of insects, billions of fungi, dancing together on a blue pearl in unimaginable space. I don't understand, in the order of things, let's say, how it is that the brightest most complex creature of them all, can only seem to destroy everything and each other. I don't get it....
