The Russian Far East is home to some of the world’s rarest and unique species, including Amur tigers and leopards, Kamchatka brown bears, and Blakiston’s fish owls.

The Wildlife Conservation Society focuses on these key species as a means to achieve biodiversity conservation and protect critical habitats throughout this region. We use science as a foundation for designing and implementing effective conservation plans.

GORAL ON A BADGER SITE VISIT (VIDEO)



Amur (or long-tailed) goral - one of the rarest mountain ungulates - was captured by camera trap in the Sikhote-Alin Biosphere Nature Reserve.  This secretive species of goral, endangered within Russia and listed as Vulnerable by the IUCN, is found only in northeast Asia including the southern Russian Far East, the Korean peninsula, and northeastern China. Sikhote-Alin Nature Reserve hosts about 180 individual animals - the largest single population of goral in Russia.

WORKSHOP ON POPULATION ECOLOGY

Our Sikhote-Alin Research Center hosted one more 5-day workshop. This time we taught population ecology, namely methods to estimate population abundance and then analyze these data. 'How many individuals are out there?' That is a question which is often asked by researchers and public. However, it is a very challenging task to obtain realistic estimates of population density. We discussed transect and plot surveys, methods of capture-recapture, spatially-explicit methods, and survey of animals when individuals are not recognized. For rare and elusive species, occupancy analysis was introduced.
