An adult bull reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) near the abandoned whaling station in Stromness Bay, South Georgia. MORE INFO A few reindeer from Norway were introduced to the South Atlantic island of South Georgia in the beginning of the 20th century by Norwegian whaler Carl Anton Larsen and his brother. Today, there are two distinct herds still thriving there, permanently separated by glaciers. Their total numbers are no more than a few thousand. The government of South Georgia is wrestling with the controversy of whether or not to eradicate this introduced species, or to allow it to continue to live on South Georgia.
