Almost 200 visitors from Spain, Germany, South Korea, China, as well as from the western regions of Russia, visited the National Park "Land of Leopard" in the south of Primorye in the first two months of summer, as it is reported on the website of the National Park on Friday.

The report emphasizes that eco-tourism is one of the methods for mass public informing about the far eastern leopard and the natural environment where he lives. Currently, there are three tourist routes in the National Park: "Leopard's Lair", "To the heart of Cedar Honeydew" and "Leopard Trail".

"Guests" of “Leopard Land" are acquainted with the wealth of flora and fauna of southern Primorye, unparalleled throughout the Far East. It is here where you can meet a typical representative of the northern latitudes, like spruce, which encircles a real Southerner - Amur grape", - said in a statement. It is noted that all routes to the "Land of Leopard" are developed so that the tourist flows do not create trouble for wild cats.

"Environmental educational tourism in the "Land of Leopard" turned to nature without causing damage to it, does not undermine the stability of the environment. It focuses on environmental awareness and concern for the preservation of the local cultural environment, based on the principles of sustainable development. We explain to tourists that they are visiting a conservation of nature, and, walking on the trail, everyone should be aware of all responsibility towards the nature, which he or she takes over", according to the report of the chief of the Department of Environmental Education of National Park "Land of Leopard" Valentina Pichugina.

Primorsky Territory lies in the Russia’s outskirts, in the very south of the Far East on the Japan Sea coast. Its area is 165.9 thousand km, which equals to almost 1% of the total area of the Russian Federation.

The climate in here is temperate, monsoon, and humid, and is distinguished by mild winters and cool summers. The average January temperatures in these regions range from –20o to –4oC. The warmest month in Primorye’s continental areas is July, and on the coastline- August. The average summer temperature is 18C.

The region is known for its nature reserves and unique species which are very rare anywhere else. Primorsky Territory features a stunning diversity of life. Habitual species of the north like moose and bear here live together with tiger and leopard, European birch and northern larch are often coexist with tropical vines and lianas. A number of plants and animals are unique to this region. The local Botanical Gardens are full of diverse trees, shrubs and vines, most of which are indigenous species found in the forests of Primorye. Even the pink Indian Lotus grows here in the wild.

One of the most remarkable residents of the Maritime Province is the Siberian Tiger, who, in fact, does not live outside the Province in any significant quantities.
