Flaming autumn came to the Land of Leopard

06 october 2011
WWF helps to combating forest fires in the Amur leopard's habitat.

The first burning was suppressed by the fire-team of voluntaries in Khasanskii district on October 2, right after announcing the fire season. Next day, another fire was registered on Sukhanovskii Crossing, not far from the railway.

Those who set fire have left clear evidences like half-burnt cross-ties close to railroad Razdolnoe-Khasan. Used cross-ties stocked in piles after being replaced with new ones were fired simultaneously in four places in 100-160 meters distance therefore the fire covered a large area.

Right away WWF and other organizations are getting ready to appeal the Transport Prosecutor Office as they think that the culprits are from one of railroad services. Notification and photos with the fire have been sent to the district fire emergency unit.
