ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE LESSER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE MIGRATION STOPS IN THE SURGUT DISTRICT OF THE KHANTY-MANSIYSK AUTONOMOUS OKRUG — UGRA AND THE PROBLEM OF SPECIES CONSERVATION

Abstract:

The analysis of the photographs sent by the hunters from Sytomino village, Khanty-Mansiysk Au-tonomous Okrug — Ugra, together with the further survey detected the place of migration stops of Lesser White-fronted Geese in the Middle Ob valley. The birds were staying at the small lake 3.5 km east of the village. On September 12, 2011, one wounded individ-ual was found near the lake at the complex raised bog 9.5 km southwest of the city of Lyantor. Several ways can be suggested by us to save flying Lesser White-fronted Geese and other species of vulnerable animals at the territory of the autonomous okrug. This will in-clude the following measures to take: an obligatory exam for hunters to be able to identify some species of the regional fauna; large penalties for illegal hunting, more active propaganda of respect for nature and edu-cational work and developing hunting culture. The article also covers economic and organizational issues.
