Description

The Zimovs believe that large grazing animals helped maintain rich Arctic grasslands during the Ice Age, in part by fertilizing the grass. In hopes of bringing back the dry steppe—and also slowing permafrost thaw—they are now importing wild horses and other grazers to a site along a tributary of the Kolyma River. They call it Pleistocene Park.
