ALROSA to Support Reindeer Protection Program

October 2016
ALROSA is supporting a Reindeer Protection programme to help preserve the traditional way of life of the indigenous minorities and the biological ecosystems in the area around the Verkhne Munskoe diamond deposit.   Satellite radio collars are now being attached to reindeer to transmit their location every 20 minutes.  When the reindeer enter a production area or start crossing the access road the division is brought to a standstill so that the reindeer can pass freely.
