The Khabarovsk Territory will create a unique national park

The Shantar Islands National Park will be formed on the territory of the islands of the same name and the adjacent waters of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. Environmentalists from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have been pushing for the park for nearly fifteen years.

WWF Russia environmentalists have proposed to take the territory around the islands and the marine area under protection for the conservation of aquatic bioresources and the last bowhead whales that come to feed in the area. In the rivers of the archipelago there are large spawning grounds of salmon fishes, and in the Srednyaya River, the only place on the whole coast of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, fish are inhabited by a fish (species listed in the Red Book of the Russian Federation), the unique Shantar population of which is limited in number and needs special protection.

The national park will be one of the pearls of Russia's Pacific necklace. Huge colonies of seabirds, seal rookeries and concentrations of brown bears, more than 100 nests of the ocean eagle, waterfalls from ten to 100 meters, steep orange-red inaccessible rocks and kekurs, bowhead whales - all this will be protected, but available for ecological tourism, which it will not harm the nature of the unique archipelago.
