The Wider Image: A father and son's Ice Age plot to slow Siberian thaw 
Vadim Meshcheryakov, an employee of the Pleistocene Park, checks greenhouse gas sensors at the Ambolikha station, outside of the town of Chersky, Sakha (Yakutia) Republic, Russia, September 13, 2021. Sergey Zimov, a scientist, has championed a surreal idea to slow the thaw in one area of Yakutia by populating Pleistocene Park with large herbivores including bison, camels and musk oxen. The idea is to mimic the region's ecosystem during the last ice age that ended 11,700 years ago. The animals, he says, trample the snow, making it much more compact so the frigid winter temperatures can freeze the soil and the snow does not act as a thick insulating blanket.
