The reindeers live and feed in their natural environment, if this environment were to disappear then so would the Sami culture and the reindeer's natural habitat. Meanwhile the Finnish state owned logging company Metsälitilus continues to deplete the traditional reindeer grazing areas. Some reindeer herders have filed a lawsuit against the Finnish state with the UN human rights committee.
