New reserve for dzeren
Creating a nature reserve with a total area 213 838
ha is an urgent measure to ensure the smooth migration of antelope dzeren between Russia and Mongolia, as well as to maintain friendly and mutually beneficial relations between the
countries. The new reserve will be transferred to the control FGBU
Works on creation of the reserve was started in 2008 with the support of World Wildlife Fund and the Steppe of the UNDP / GEF. Driven by extreme drought and fire, tens of thousands rushed dzerenov then from Mongolia to Russia. The line of engineering structures (ITS) was lethal for antelope obstacle and did not allow them to pass freely into our country. However, rescue activities organized by the reserve staff, "White-naped" and border guards with the help of WWF, helping to prevent mass death of animals .
About two thousand antelope were fixed then on Russian territory. Some of the animals moved under heavy guard in the reserve . But another part was in unprotected areas, where the Red Book hoof threatened poachers.
"Valley dzeren" will build on the success of the reserve in the Daurian steppe restoration of this species of ungulates in the Trans-Baikal region and will help to maintain the full range of plants and animals of the steppe Daurian.
At this time the antelope are the most vulnerable: the males are driven females in harems, protect them from each other and completely
lose their caution.
