The wild forest reindeer is part of the original fauna of Finland but it was hunted to extinction about 100 years ago. It survived in Russian Karelia and started migrating back to Eastern Finland after the WWII. In the 1980's these beatiful animals were reintroduced to the northern part of Suomenselkä watershed area and now the Metsäpeura LIFE -project managed by Metsähallitus is reintroducing them to the southern Suomenselkä, starting from the National Parks of Lauhanvuori and Seitseminen.
