Khabarovsky Province Hunting Department and hunting resources users perfect their professional skills

07 december 2017
On December 4-5, WWF Russia and the Ministry of natural Resources of Khabarovsky Province held a seminar “Legal Precedents on Prevention Crimes against Wildlife”.

Among 60 seminar participants was the staff of the Khabarovsky Province Hunting Department, Service for fauna Protection and Protected Areas, and hunting resources users.  They are the ones being in the forefront when dealing with human-predators conflicts, revealing and investigating violations against fauna species, and safeguarding habitats of the Amur tiger and ungulates. This seminar, that was not the first one in the row, was conducted as part of the Cooperative Agreement between WWF Russia and Khabarovsky Province Ministry of Natural Resources. 

“The focal point of the seminar’s agenda was to discuss the amendments into the environmental laws. One of them gives more detailed definitions of administrative and criminal infringements against fauna species”, comments Olga Zherebkina, legal adviser of WWF Russia Amur branch. “For example, today when defining the level of damage one should take into account the dates of hunt, the quantity of game taken, and the allowable game harvest”.

Among the lectors were representatives of Inquiry Unit of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Amur Basin Environmental Prosecutor Office, and Veterinary Department of Khabarovsky Province. Common mistakes when opening an administrative case, providing veterinary safety and control, issues on labelling and investigation of criminal cases were reviewed. Also, techniques of tiger tracking and conflicts prevention were considered, as well as the legal basis for the supervision over hunting industry, monitoring of game species, and issues on management plans for hunting clubs.
