WWF helps solving crimes against nature

17 june 2016
On June 14-17, at the Institute of Advanced and Additional Training of the Primorye State Agriculture Academy, WWF in cooperation with the Regional Office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs

held qualification courses for 16 law enforcement officials. Among lectures there were the specialists of Primorsky Province Hunting and Forestry Departments, Directorate for PAs, WWF experts, teachers of the Agriculture Academy and the Juridical Institute as well as staff of the Prosecutor Office.

Three-days-long courses were devoted to the regulatory enforcement in the forest sector. Investigation officers were trained how to define tree species, how to assess the quality and measure the quantity of round and saw wood stored in train carriages, in storage piles in the logging sites, and carried in the logging trucks. The most attention was given to the timber legality origin.

Over the last three years such courses were organized by WWF for the third time. Among the trainees there was law enforcement staff, staff of forest service, state game wardens, and hunting lease users. After the courses all trainees got official certificates. Knowledge and skills received will help policemen and hunting inspectors timely reveal forest legislation violations and bring discipline into forest use practices.
