Hunting clubs of Primorsky province were trained to increase ungulates numbers and carry out sustainable hunting management

15 march 2021
The workshop was organized with support of WWF Russia Amur branch on March 10-11 in Severnaya hunting estate - one of WWF’s model areas.
Participants gained knowledge on control over extraction of game resources within the Amur tiger habitats and other rare species, learned about measures to increase the number of game resources, and summed up preliminary results of the extremely difficult winter of 2020-2021. Due to the epizootic of African swine fever, which was first recorded in the Pogranichny district of Primorye in August 2019 and by now has spread to all areas of the Amur tiger and Far Eastern leopard habitat in the south of the Russian Far East, there is an urgent need to increase the number of ungulate species alternative to wild boar. This is necessary in order to prevent the conflict of large predators with humans due to a decrease in the food resources.

The practical part of the workshop was held on Severnaya hunting club territory, which thanks to WWF, has all available forms of infrastructural objects and facilities to increase ungulates numbers even in such difficult seasons such as 2020-2021.
