FSUE “Rosmorport” and the Amur Tiger Center sum up the results of cooperation in 2022

In 2022, FSUE “Rosmorport” supported projects of the Amur Tiger Center on studying and preserving the population of the largest predator of the can family. As part of the cooperation agreement signed in June 2022, the enterprise supported environmental, scientific and educational projects of the center.

At the expense of FSUE “Rosmorport”, the center purchased two Niva cars, an all-terrain vehicle and an engine for snowmobile Buran, as well as spare and consumable parts for official transport, for the Hunting Supervision Service of Primorsky Krai. The new equipment is used for surveillance activities and during anti-poaching raids.

With the help of FSUE “Rosmorport”, a gasoline generator was purchased for the Bikin National Park, the largest specially protected natural area in the Amur tiger range. It was installed as an auxiliary energy source on the territory of a tourist shelter opened in September 2022. The shelter is located in the depth of the national park, on an ecological trail leading to Mount Ulma. Apart from tourists, the center will be used by employees of the national park during long environmental raids.

As part of its scientific and educational activities, FSUE “Rosmorport” became a partner of the Amur Tiger Center at the “United Nations Model in the Far East” conference. Among the topics covered at the event were climate change and sustainable development. A representative of the center gave a lecture to the conference delegates about the measures taken in Russia to study and preserve the Amur tiger population. The most active participants of the discussion received souvenirs with the emblem of FSUE “Rosmorport”.

For reference:

The Amur tiger is one of the rarest subspecies of the tiger, the largest and the only one adapted to life in harsh winter conditions. It is included in the Red Book of the Russian Federation and the International Red Book. More than 600 individuals of these predators live in the wild nature of Russia.

The Amur Tiger Center is an organization created by the Russian Geographical Society upon the initiative of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin to increase the population of the Amur tiger in Russia. The center operates without budget funding, solely thank to the sponsorship of organizations and individuals.
