The zapovednik, or nature reserve system in Russia, will soon be 81 years old. The approximately 147 reserves throughout northern Eurasia contain some of the most amazing, and least known, biodiversity on Planet Earth. They are imperiled by lack of funds and impoverished local populations who, struggling to survive, destroy rare flora and fauna.

E-mail came to 20% of the reserves and national parks in the last 2-3 years. Now there is an opportunity to contact the leading representatives of the reserves below and find out about specific, beneficial actions that can be taken. See how you can help!
