News in Levels, Reindeer in Finland – level 2

Reindeer in Finland – level 2

Reindeer in Finland freely walk the land, but around 4,000 of them die on the roads every year. This is a loss for the herders, drivers, and of course, the reindeer themselves.

There is a new app which is trying to save the animals and save people money. When you see a reindeer, you can just tap your smartphone. It creates a 1.5-kilometre warning zone that lasts for 1 hour. When somebody enters the zone, the phone sends out a warning.

The pilot project began in June. One thousand drivers received phones with the app. So far, there have been 100 fewer accidents compared to the same period in 2013.

Difficult words: herder (somebody who has a herd/a group of animals), pilot (a test), period (a time of the year).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
