WCS Russia

 

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.

HUMAN DIMENSION IN WILDLIFE

Public support is an integral component of any conservation project, even if it is the most difficult to achieve. Usually, decisions based on scientific research will find both support and resistance.  So how does one find a balance between the public and the wild? This very question was tackled in a 5-day workshop entitled “Human dimension in wildlife: stakeholder engagement.”  The course was held at The Wildlife Conservation Society’s (WCS) Sikhote-Alin research center in the town of Terney, Primorsky Krai. Cornell University associate professor Dr. Heidi Kretser, who has worked for WCS for over 20 years, led the course, introducing a topic relatively new to Russian science.
