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.
Recently, we added a new page to our website to feature our Training program based in Sikhote-Alin Research Center, Terney, Primorski krai, Russia. Our traininings and workshops are developed for wildlife researchers to provide them with all skills necessary for research and management of endangered species and other aspects of nature protection. You can read about the program in general, past workshops (2016-2017) and upcoming trainings.
As part of a small carnivore project at Sikhote-Alin Biosphere Zapovednik, specialists of ANO WCS in cooperation with SABZ are monitoring activities around den sites to understand population dynamics of badgers. To our surprise, this video (below) captured a young lynx practicing his hunting skills on an unsuspecting badger. Lucky for the badger, this lynx was not prepared to exploit this opportunity.
