WWF develops Management Plan for Sailugemsky National Park
The Protected Area was established with WWF support in 2010 for Altai argali and Snow leopard conservation. It is an area crucial for protection of WWF flagship species with focus in transboundary Russian-Mongolian collaboration. The management plan is a key document for a new PA to start a sound and well planned work to effectively allocate the finance and get the maximum conservation results. As the PA has already some problems with local people who underestimate the value of PA the management Plan will include a specific chapter of socio-economic development and awareness raising.
