Staff of the Rare Bird Reintroduction Station of the Khingansky Reserve have released Japanese cranes into the wild. This species is listed in the Red Book of Russia.

"Three young cranes raised in captivity by the Station staff have embarked on their adult life. Annually, with the permission of the Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources and under the control of the Directorate staff, the Station's specialists release rare birds into the wild to replenish their natural population," the report says.

All three cranes were previously carefully examined by veterinarian ornithologists. They had a festive dinner the day before the release, and in the morning the birds left the Station.

Since 1988, more than a hundred Japanese cranes have been released into the wild. Thanks to this, the Japanese crane group on the Khingano-Arkharinskaya lowland, which has the status of a wetland of international importance, is currently the largest in the Amur Region.
