A rehabilitation program to save arctic foxes in Norway
Preserving arctic foxes in Norway is the mission of this rehabilitation program. A few days ago, 14 of them were released into the wild. Brut nature went to visit the area in Norway.
Hunted to near extinction and now threatened by global warming, food shortage, mountain urbanization and competition with the red fox, arctic foxes are now critically endangered in Norway. To preserve this iconic species, a rehabilitation program was set up in 2005. Brut went to visit the area in Norway. 14 arctic foxes are now ready to be released.
