Record #173233:

Of reindeer and man, modern and Neanderthal: a creation story founded on a historical perspective on how to conserve wildlife, woodland caribou in particular / Valerius Geist.

Title: Of reindeer and man, modern and Neanderthal: a creation story founded on a historical perspective on how to conserve wildlife, woodland caribou in particular / Valerius Geist.
Author(s): Geist, Valerius.
Date: 2003.
In: Rangifer. (2003.), Special issue No. 14 (2003)
Abstract: Presents argument that reindeer are key species that made ascent of man possible, due to their being staple food during Upper Palaeolithic. Consequently mankind owes debt to species, which should be repaid in form of foundation organised by volunteers to encourage conservation of caribou. Gives example of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation as possible model.
