"A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke."
People in Maryland love their Baltimore orioles — so much so that their major league baseball team bears the name of the migrating bird. Yet, by 2080, there may not be any orioles left in Maryland. They migrate each year and, according to a new report, could soon be forced to nest well north of the Mid-Atlantic state.
And the oriole is not alone. A seven-year study published Tuesday by the National Audubon Society warns that the migratory routes and habitats of more than half of the birds in North America are now or soon will be threatened by climate change.

This project is about the nomadic tribes of reindeer herders in my homeland, the Republic of Yakutia, which is located in eastern Siberia.
There are five nationalities of reindeer herders that live on the territory of the Republic: Even, Evenk, Yukagir, Chukchi and Colgan. All of them are smaller populations, for instance the total number of Yukagir in the world at this moment is only 1509 people.
During the period of one year I traveled with reindeer herders in different parts of Yakutia. I witnessed a unique culture that almost has not changed for centuries.
