Yamal Crater, Yamal Peninsula, Siberia, Russia

The peninsula consists mostly of permafrost ground and is geologically a very young place —some areas are less than ten thousand years old.
In the Russian Federation, the Yamal peninsula is the place where traditional large-scale nomadic reindeer husbandry is best preserved. On the peninsula, several thousand Nenets and Khanty reindeer herders hold about half a million domestic reindeer. At the same time, Yamal is inhabited by a multitude of migratory bird species.
