The autumn Russian-Kazakh expedition to study the migration of ungulates in the Altai transboundary reserve has ended. It was carried out in the border areas of the Katon-Karagai National Park in the area of Mount Belukha. Specialists from the national park and the Katunsky Nature Reserve took part in the expedition.

The Association of Nature Reserves and National Parks of the Altai-Sayan ecoregion reported this on its website.

“Ecologists have installed camera traps on potential migration routes of roe deer and red deer. This will make it possible to quantify the intensity of animal migration across the border of Russia and Kazakhstan in the protected area,” the report says.

Seasonal migrations of roe deer and red deer occur in the Altai transboundary reserve. In the summer, the animals come to the territory of the Katunsky Nature Reserve, where they reproduce, and for the winter they go to the adjacent areas of the Katon-Karagai National Park. According to the association, joint work on studying the migration of ungulates began in 2022. Every year, two joint expeditions are carried out during the periods of autumn and spring migration.

“During previous expeditions, the migration corridor in the western part of the joint border was examined. Now, environmentalists have walked along the eastern section of the border in the area of the Small Berelskoe Saddle pass,” the report notes.

The work is being carried out within the framework of the Joint Action Plan of the Altai transboundary reserve and the Program of Russian-Kazakh cooperation in the development of the protected area system for 2021-2024.
