The press service of Rosprirodnadzor announced the launch of the Russian Bear Patrol project. Within the framework of it, leading experts will teach residents of the Arctic territories the basics of interaction with a polar bear.

A large-scale explanatory campaign has already been launched, which will cover five Arctic regions: the Arkhangelsk Region, the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, the Krasnoyarsk Territory, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug. These are the territories of the polar bear habitat in Russia. Specialists will also train shift workers and tourists. Seminars and webinars will be developed for them.

Clean Arctic volunteers joined the project, who held the first open lesson in one of Salekhard's schools. Kindergarten students are also taught the rules of safe behavior with a polar bear.

In the near future, it is planned to create special training centers for residents of the Arctic territories.

Rosprirodnadzor noted that it is not necessary to approach polar bears or try to feed them in their natural environment. Cubs, which are fed by shift workers, lose the ability to hunt and no longer leave people. The animal is deprived of the possibility of adaptation. Therefore, the "Bear Patrol" was created so that polar bears would remain in their natural habitat.
