The Land of the Leopard is on fire! Our ranger informed us that the fire-hazardous season started very early this year caused by open winter with no snow. Usually the wildland fires in Khasan district begin in March or even April. However, in 2014 we have to start fire-fighting in February. The Phoenix Fund began to gather volunteer brigades that will help the national park to fight fires in the Amur leopard habitat. We ask everyone to support our important work with your donations. Now the collected funds will go to purchase of necessary fire-fighting equipment and fuel for the brigades' vehicles.
