The status of high conservation value forests immediately received 110 thousand hectares of forest territories of the Khabarovsk Territory. An agreement on the protection of the territory was signed by WWF Russia and the timber processing holding RFP Group.

According to the press service of the Amur branch of WWF Russia, a complete ban on commercial timber harvesting and the creation of a road network is being introduced on the indicated area. In total, 20 unique forests were found on the sites: subalpine complexes of dark coniferous, rare tall grass spruce forests, virgin forests, complexes of hanging supreme bogs and other categories. Each of the sites stood out during field expeditions that took place in 2011.

In 2021, work to identify particularly valuable forests will continue. Particular attention will be paid to the protection of intact forest territories that were not subject to large-scale impact of human economic activity.

Previously, organizations agreed to create a Shaman-Yai nature reserve in the Khabarovsk Territory. There, in 2012, a unique section of the Ussuri taiga was discovered: broad-leaved forests, surrounded by the typical northern flora of the lower Amur.
