The exhibition Kedrovaya Pad: A Century of Conservation, timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Kedrovaya Pad Nature Reserve, opened at Vladimir Arsenyev Primorye State Museum on 3 October. It is devoted to the work of state inspectors who monitor Land of the Leopard National Park.
"We are pleased to host the exhibition at our museum. The Vladimir Arsenyev Museum and Land of the Leopard National Park have a positive experience of cooperation on exhibitions, research and educational activities. In addition, Vladimir Arsenyev, who loved the nature of the Ussuri taiga, repeatedly talked about the need to create a nature reserve in the Primorye Territory, so the opening of the exhibition at our museum marking the reserve's centennial anniversary is quite symbolic," Vera Kavetskaya, head of the museum's research department, said.
The exhibition features over 20 exhibits, including inspectors' equipment and home-made poaching devices seized during arrest. It also includes modern fire-fighting tools, such as a compressed-air blower, which destroys the myth that air flow increases flames.
The exhibition will run until 30 October. The reserve's staff will hold a series of lectures on reserve management for children and adults as part of the exhibition.
