Orsolya Haarberg & Erlend Haarberg - Playing fox cubs


The arctic fox has been protected in Norway since 1930 and is listed “critically endangered”. The last cubs were born in the middle of the 1990 in Dovrefjell. Thanks to a reintroduction program started in 2005, the first individuals were released in Dovrefjell in 2007. Since then the arctic fox population has increased and new cubs were born in the wild. When I visited them in 2014, first they were very careful, but as soon as they realized that I was no danger for them, they started playing unreservedly.

Location: Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella National Park, Norway.
