WWF presented a visit center to Land of the Leopard National Park
The visit center was built in the village of Barabash, Primorye, Russian Far East, in 2006 with funds provided by the Kartashovs, one of WWF Russia’s Golden Panda Club members.
«From the very beginning, seven years ago, the visit center was designed as a future office of the National Park and now WWF has fulfilled its obligations, mentionedDr. Yury Darman, head of WWF Russia Amur branch during the ceremony. The building is already of great help to the Park in the territory protection, wild ungulates management, scientific research, and public awareness».
«Over the years we have managed to unite under its roof lots of people who later became partners and friends of Land of the Leopard National Park. I wish the Park’s staff understanding and brotherhood to successfully achieve their main goal – to save the Amur leopard, added Dr. Yury Darman.
