MANAGING TIGER-HUMAN CONFLICTS
FAR EASTERN LEOPARD
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.
The 2020 season studying the breeding ecology of endangered Nordmann’s Greenshanks (Tringa guttifer) and Common Redshanks (Tringa totanus ussuriensis) in Schaste Bay, Khabarovsk Krai, Russia was a success despite the logistical difficulties caused by Covid-19.
We lost a scientist, a mentor, a sage, and a dear friend when Mikhail Nikolaevich Gromyko passed away on May 1 this year. The employees of the Sikhote-Alin Zapovednik mourn the loss of their friend and colleague, the people of Terney mourn their departed neighbor, and the scientists of Russia who knew of him and his work all recognize that a giant has moved on. We can only try to follow his moral compass, humbly caring for the people around us and the natural world we so depend upon.
