Sikhote-Alin Nature Reserve

Primorsky Krai
The Sikhote-Alin Nature Reserve, the largest in the Primorye Territory, is located in the central part of the Sikhote-Alin Range. It is a territory of contrasts, a land of surprising diversity and contradictions of natural zones: from high mountains to sandy and pebbly beaches of the sea coast. It combines relict, endemic, Okhotsk and even subtropical species of flora and fauna. Created to restore the sable population, the reserve became an "island of salvation" for many species of animals and plants that were endangered.
About 97% of the territory of the reserve is occupied by forests, the main wealth of which is Korean cedar. On one territory harz and sable, Himalayan and brown bears, the Amur tiger and lynx get along well. Spotted seals live on the reserved coast of the Sea of Japan. Sikhote-Alin is a place with an amazing nature worth seeing by the whole family.
The reserve is included in the system of international biosphere reserves, is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. In 2015, the Sikhote-Alin Reserve, the only one in Russia and the second in the world, received a CATS certificate proving the importance of this territory for the preservation of the rarest cat on the planet - the Amur tiger.
