The governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport took part in the retreat of the Security Council of the Russian Federation in Komsomolsk-on-Amur
In Komsomolsk-on-Amur, a meeting of the Security Council of Russia took place. The meeting was chaired by the Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev. Heads of federal ministries and departments, as well as the head of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport, took part in the work.
The participants of the meeting focused on the issues of preserving wildlife in the Far Eastern Federal District Opening the meeting, Nikolai Patrushev stressed the importance and relevance of this topic for the regions of the Far East. Poaching has a negative impact on biodiversity conservation. More than 160 species of wild flora and fauna of the region were damaged, including the Amur tiger, Far Eastern leopard, rare species of sturgeon, etc. Nikolai Patrushev stressed that this is a direct threat to the country's environmental safety.
“It is necessary to increase the effectiveness of measures to counter illegal poaching, to improve the system of state control in the field of environmental management in the Far Eastern Federal District. In addition, it is necessary to increase the number of natural parks and recreational areas. An important issue is the expansion of the staff of hunting inspectors. When one inspector accounts for a million hectares of territory, it is difficult to talk about the effectiveness of nature protection. Together with the regions, it is necessary to work out the financing of these events ”, - stressed the Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation.
Governor Vyacheslav Shport, speaking at the meeting, noted that sustainable development of the region is impossible without preserving the biological diversity of the natural environment. Therefore, great attention is paid to the preservation of natural wealth in the region.
In 2014, for the implementation of measures to protect wildlife and specially protected natural territories, the regional budget provided 74 million rubles. In 2013, more than 1 thousands of patrol raids were carried out by state inspectors of the region, about 900 environmental violations were identified.
The system of specially protected natural territories is successfully functioning in the region. Their area exceeds 6 million hectares.
Among other things, a category, unique for Russia, has been created - ecological corridors to protect the movement of the Amur tiger and ungulates.
Special attention is paid to the conservation of the Amur tiger. Thanks to the measures taken, the increase in its forage base, the population of the tiger in the region has stabilized at the level of 70 - 80 individuals.
The head of the region also drew the attention of the meeting participants to a number of issues that directly affect the conservation of biodiversity in the region. He stressed that the main damage to habitats of objects of fauna is caused by forest fires.
“The region is allocated 134 million rubles for their prevention and extinguishing at the expense of subventions from the federal budget. However, the average annual costs exceed 370 million rubles. It is necessary to revise the procedure for distributing subventions from the federal budget, taking into account the fire and inaccessibility of the forest fund, ”said Vyacheslav Shport.
The Governor of the region also drew attention to the current issues of rehabilitation of wild animals listed in the Red Book. The head of the region proposed to create a federal center for the rehabilitation of such animals on the territory of the region.
