National park created in the Amur region
The Tokinsky Reserve, located in the Zeya District, received the status of a protected area at the federal level. The decision to amend the regulatory framework was signed by Dmitry Medvedev, as chairman of the Russian government.
The territory of the new national park, located on the border with Yakutia, is the only place in the region where bighorn sheep, listed in the Red Book of the Amur Region, are still preserved. According to the press service of the regional government, the local valley forests serve as a wintering place for elk.
According to Nikolai Stepanov, deputy head of the security department of the wildlife protection department of the Amur Region, changing the status of the Tokinsky Zapovednik will allow attracting additional financing to improve the material and technical base and will provide more opportunities to study the unique landscape and wildlife in the national park.
