Russian and American biologists exchange experience in protecting flora and fauna

03 april 2015
Staff of several Russian nature reserves, representatives of the Directorate of Primorsky Province Pas and WWF went to the States to be trained on how mitigate conflicts between humans and large predators.

 The staff of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Parks Service shared their knowledge in dealing with conflicts with bears, wolves, deers, and mountain cats.

Since 2010 with the support of WWF special groups on conflict resolution have been active in Primorsky and Khabarovsky Provinces. WWF purchased special equipment, medical supplies and injectors for a distant immobilization of a conflict animal. WWF supports Utyos, the rehabilitation center in Khabarovsk, provides trainings for the rangers. In April and October 2015 the American specialists plan to pay a return visit to the Sikhote-Alinsky Nature Reserve, and Land of the Leopard National Park to learn the local situation with the conflicts.
