The Natural Treasures of Amur exhibition opened at the Vladimir Arsenyev Primorye State Museum in Vladivostok on 27 January. The exhibition features about a hundred photos of the unique nature of Land of the Leopard and the southern Far East. The event marks the Year of Specially Protected Areas.
"Not everyone is lucky enough to see a Far Eastern leopard or Amur tiger in the wild, but today everyone can learn more about the wildlife of nature reserves thanks to the skills of wildlife photographers whose works are displayed at the exhibition," Tatyana Baranovskaya, director of Land of the Leopard, said at the opening of the exhibition.
The exhibition opened on 11 January, on the Day of Nature Reserves and National Parks, in several regions of the Russian Far East. Photos of the wildlife inhabiting the Amur River basin are on view in Chita, Zeya, Birobidzhan, Khabarovsk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Amursk and Nikolayevsk-on-Amur. In the Primorye Territory, the exhibition took place in the villages of Krasny Yar and Lazo. It will run until 16 April in Vladivostok.
