History Of Lazovsky State Nature Reserve
November 8, 2017 01:13


Lazovsky State Nature Reserve named after L.G. Kaplanov has a rich history. Even in the XIX century, researchers from the south of the Far East stated the value of this territory in scientific terms.

In 1928, the South Ussuri (Suzukhinsky) sanctuary was created here with an area of 70,000 hectares.

In February 1935, the Lazovsky (Suzuhinsky) branch of the Sikhote-Alin Reserve was established; in 1940 it was declared an independent reserve.

In January 1946, new territories were added to the reserve, and as a result its area expanded to 339,000 hectares. That time the reserve occupied the part of Lazovsky, Olginsky and Chuguevsky districts of Primorye. In subsequent years, the reserve was closed, then opened again, seized and annexed different territories.

In 1970 the Suzukhinsky Reserve was renamed as Lazovsky, and still has the same name. Its area is currently 121 thousand hectares, another 15 thousand hectares are a security zone. This is the second largest reserve in the Primorsky Territory.
