Video about the project Pleistocene Park at Observer Station NESS, Russia

In 1989, Sergey Zimov, director of the Northeast Science Station in Cherskii, initiated a long-term project known as “Pleistocene Park”.  The primary scientific goal is to determine more precisely the role that Pleistocene animals played in maintaining their own ecosystem. Therefore the project aims to reconstitute the long-gone ecosystem of the Pleistocene epoch that supported vast populations of large animals including horses, reindeer, bison, wolves, and other large predators. Here you can watch a film about the project.
