Russia to Issue New Version of Red Book in 2015

According to the head of Russia's Department of the Interior, the last unabridged edition of Russia's Red Book came out in 2001, and the information about vanishing species have changed a lot since then.

      Today the most endangered species in Russia concentrate in Siberia, Caucasia and the Far East. Usually a decrease in animals population happens bacause of deterioration of their customary habitats as a consequence of industrial development of the territories. Another reason is global ecological changes. However, the most endagered animals are currently those who are being destroyed by poachers, as Sergey Donskoy, the head of Russia's Department of the Interior, says. The decision to include a rare animal or plant in Russia's Red Book is usually taken by several leading experts from scientific institutions.

      The newest Russia's Red Book edition will help to fix the population of rare and vanishing species and to create a base for taking necessary administrative measures in this sphere. In particular, the Russia's Department of the Interior have already incarnated a number of measures to exacerbate the punishment for poaching.

      The Ministry also plans to incarnate a number of programs and strategies to widen wildlife preservations in ward and protection of the country. In the near future a national preserve "Ingermanland" is expected to appear in Gulf of Finland, the Baltic Sea. Another one is "Solovetsky Archipelago" reserve to be created in the Arkhangelsky Region.

      Besides, it is planned to widen the territory of the Caucasian state wildlife preservation in the Krasnodar Territory and the national wildlife park "Russian Arctic" in the Arkhangelsky Region.
