China to establish a national park to save the Far Eastern leopard

The Chinese government will allocate 13 billion yuans (RUB 146 bln) for a five-year programme to establish a specially protected area (SPA) for the conservation of the Far Eastern leopard and Amur tiger. The SPA will be located in four nature reserves bordering Russia's Primorye Territory, the Chinese experts told a delegation from Land of the Leopard National Park. The Chinese researchers intend to use the experience of their Russian colleagues to create a new kind of SPA based on Russian experience.

"Chinese experts consider the work of Land of the Leopard researchers successful and effective. Throughout 2016, Chinese specialists will make several visits to the park to study our work, learn the necessary skills and broaden their experience. An area similar to the one in Russia will be created across the border in China for a comprehensive solution to nature conservation issues," Land of the Leopard National Park Director Tatyana Baranovskaya said.

The establishment of a new SPA in Jilin Province will begin in April. The park's employees will not only work to preserve natural diversity but will also engage in research and offer environmental education and ecotourism services.

During a meeting between the Land of the Leopard administration and Beijing Normal University, the sides signed a supplement to the 2015 agreement on the exchange of research data and the publication of a joint research paper focusing on the Far Eastern leopard populations in Russia and China.
