Two UAS cars were presented by WWF and partners to Sallugemsky National park
Two UAZ-452 vehicles were handed over to the Sailugemsky national park on the eve of the Day of the Snow Leopard in the Altai Republic, which is celebrated in the region on May 26. The Snow Leopard Day in Russia was first celebrated in the region in 2010. The same year Saylyugemsky National Park was established with WWF and partners’ support. The main goal of Sailugemsky national park is to protect and study the snow leopard and Altai mountain sheep.
UAZ car is a popular car of Russian reserves and national parks. Spare parts for UAZs are easy to purchase, the car is passable, the rangers are able to repair the car. The new UAZ vehicles will allow inspectors of the Sailyugem National Park to go on raids more often and regularly patrol a large area, which will make the snow leopard's habitat safer.
Cars produced by the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant have been transferred to the scientific department and the department for protecting the territory of the national park: anti-poaching raids, research expeditions will be carried out at an altitude of 1500 to 3000 thousand meters above sea level.
