Successful pursuit

Checking a violator

We are glad to report about another successful pursuit in Southwest Primorye!

At noon on Friday, January 14, the Southern anti-poaching team found footprints belonging allegedly to two men and followed a trail of footprints to catch up with and arrest the intruders. After a 2-hour pursuit the rangers noticed that the violators entered Kedrovaya Pad Nature Reserve. At 4:00 p.m. the footprints belonging to one of the trespassers were lost on the southern slopes of a bare hill. Later on, a man with an illegal hunting rifle was arrested and taken into police custody. A criminal proceeding was initiated.

It is obvious that the rangers do a great job patrolling two protected areas, Leopardovy Wildlife Refuge and Kedrovaya Pad Nature Reserve, home to Amur leopards and tigers. And it is possible thanks to your generosity, our supporters, and rangers’ commitment to nature conservation.

On behalf of our staff, I wish you joy and peace in 2011.
