Most interesting bit of news I read today (or lately): Reindeer help reduce climate change!

“Reindeer, say scientists, may alter Arctic landscapes in profound and climate-helpful ways. Their foraging habits change the tundra’s surface so that it reflects rather than absorbs sunlight. In other words, reindeer—or caribou, as they’re known in North America—apply sunscreen to an overheating planet.” via Anthropocene Magazine
