First Russian Falcon Centre to Open in Kamchatka

The first Russian falcon centre is to be opened in the Kamchatka Region. The centre will become a pilot project as part of the programme for restoring rare bird populations in our country’s regions. The project is accompanied by the investment department of the Roscongress Foundation.

The Kamchatka centre will use best international practices for rare bird breeds reproduction, including methods of the Russian-Kyrgyz Muras Hunting Birds Rehabilitation and Reproduction Centre. In early August a group of experts from St. Petersburg Association of Scientists and Scholars visited it with the aim of studying falcon breeding practices.

«Unique methods used in the Muras centre can form the foundation for a comprehensive programme of restoring the population of birds of the falcon family in our country that over decades was damaged due to illegal export of these birds,» noted Lev Borkin, Honourary Chairman of St. Petersburg Association of Scientists and Scholars.

Earlier Minister of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation Dmitry Kobylkin came to Muras with a working visit. The managers of the Centre showed the Head of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia advanced technologies for the reproduction and restoration of the population of birds of the falcon family.

Construction of falcon centres in Russia might be supported by UAE. Currently it is expected that relevant Russian-UAE bilateral agreements will be signed. Also, the topic of international cooperation for maintaining and restoring populations of birds of the falcon family will be touched upon at scientific discussions as part of key events organized by the Roscongress Foundation, including the Eastern Economic Forum, which will be held on 4–6 September 2019.

Restoration of population of wild birds and animals in their natural habitat will significantly contribute to nature conservation and greater tourist attractiveness of the regions, as well as growth of investment in the national economy.
