The Dzhugdzhursky State Nature Reserve is located on the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk and covers an area of 859,956 hectares. Due to its structure, the territory includes landscapes of the western and eastern macroslopes of the Dzhugdzhur ridge, representing natural complexes of the East Siberian light coniferous taiga (B. Komui river basin) and South Okhotsk dark coniferous taiga (Lantar river basin, Aldom and the Coastal Ridge), as well as coastal and marine areas of the Sea of Okhotsk.

The territory is characterized as a mountainous area with a predominance of mountain ranges of the Alpine type. The main ridge - Dzhugdzhur runs along the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk and is a watershed of basin rivers flowing into the Arctic Ocean and the Sea of Okhotsk, reaching an altitude of 2000 meters; it divides the territory into two different parts, coastal and continental.

Flora and Fauna

Poplars and larch trees with different combinations of these species grow on the river valleys, two species of spruce are mixed with them, followed by light-coniferous forests of larch, then cedar bushes, which can be replaced by elfin bushes, mountain lichen tundra and stony placers. On the western macro slope of the ridge Dzhugdzhur pine forests occur.

The core of the population is composed of mountain-taiga species (red vole, East Asian mouse, chipmunk, elk, brown bear, sable, wolverine, stone grouse, nutcracker, hare); in the mountains, there are typically arctic (white partridge, wintry), as well as central Asian species (bighorn sheep, mountain ridge). In the coastal area of the reserve there is a large variety of pinnipeds: the sea hare, ringed seal, largha.

Activities


One of the most important activities of the reserve is environmental education activities: the traditional direction and an active base of work with the population and visitors is the information center located in the building of the Federal State Budgetary Institution Dzhugdzhursky State Reserve, where visitors receive information about the activities and biodiversity of the reserve, learn about tourist routes, etc. In addition, as part of the information center, there are mobile exhibitions that demonstrate the beauty and richness of apotheodial nature (photo exhibitions, exhibitions of children's drawings).

Eco Paths

In addition, the ecological paths “Fedora Bay” and “Malminsky Islands” have been created, where tourists find out general information about the reserve (history, main activities); information on marine mammals found in the waters of the bay; marine colonial birds; the biology of animals and plants  in marine emissions; the species of animals and birds  on the territory of the reserve (forest dwellers, alpine fauna, etc.) and peculiarities of the continental flora, demonstrating the main types of shrub and tree species.
