St Matthew Island


Host Per Fagereng takes a look at the reindeer of St. Matthew Island (aka the Island of Doom). This small island in the Bering Sea was once part of a WWII experiment that saw reindeer being brought to the island, only to have their population explode from a few dozen to thousands, then zero by the 1980's.
