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.

“There is always a need for vehicles in the Saylyugem National Park. Two cars that we received today are a huge help for a national park. Unfortunately, in our working conditions even UAZ vehicles can very quickly break down and become unusable, so we are very glad to update the vehicle fleet. Thank you for participating in the conservation program for big cats of WWF's partners - VTB Bank and Organika - and for helping to save the snow leopard in Alta”, says Denis Malikov, director of the Sailyugem National Park.

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.
