Baby reindeers are born in tundra
Reindeer herders have the most important time in their activity. Spring is the time when fawns (baby reindeers, "kayuyu" in Koryak, "oriyakana" in Even) are born. During this time the herd is protected from the predators day and night.

"Hailino" site has more than 400 fawns, "Slautnoe" site - more than 500.

At the same time, the preparation for summer is under way. Food, clothes, fuel and veterinary products are being brought to the sites. Specialists create and approve herding routes.
