The Decrease In the Population Of the Reindeer On the Kamchatka

The number of the reindeer in the Kronotsky Nature Reserve on the Kamchatka has plummeted in connection with the large-scale and long-term eruption of Kizimen volcano: from about 2 thousand animal units in 2006 to 850 in 2011, as the press service of the regional government has announced.


"The decrease of the population is also connected with poaching outside the reserve, because the wild reindeer go to Zhupanovskaya tundra for winter feeding, and for fawning they return to the reserve" – is said in the report. The management of Kronotsky State Biosphere Reserve is assessing the current state of the pasture base for the deer and is considering the possibility of taking biotechnical measures for feeding the deer. The materials are also prepared on creating the buffer zone of the reserve in the upper reaches of Zhupanova river, it is also planned to prohibit the traffic of snowmobiles.
