Siberia's permafrost is melting with lasting consequences.

OUTSIDE ZYRYANKA RUSSIA - JULY 8 Mammoth bones, some tens of thousands of years old, lie along the Kolyma River outside the Siberian town of Zyryanka, Russia on July 8, 2019. The bones are discarded in favor of the far more valuable tusks which are sought out, illegally, by hunters throughout the area. The melting permafrost is revealing prehistoric finds throughout Siberia. (Photo by Michael Robinson Chavez/The Washington Post via Getty Images)
