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.

SMART IMPROVES NATURE PROTECTION IN ANNUI NP



In late March the Visit Center of the Annui National Park hosted yet another SMART seminar organized by WCS. Staff of the park and WCS specialists discussed the latest SMART quarterly patrol performance report.  One year ago WCS introduced SMART at Annui National Park, making this already the sixth  protected area in Amur tiger habitat that is using SMART to help manage anti-poaching work. During the seminar WCS representatives discussed the patrol efforts during the previous quarter and results, such as citations for poaching violations and incidents where rifles were confiscated from poachers.
