The press service of the Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources (Rosprirodnadzor) reported that a wounded white-tailed eagle was found on the territory of the Kurilskiy Nature Reserve. This species is listed in the Red Book of the Russian Federation.

The bird was diagnosed with an open fracture of the right humerus. At present, the eagle is not adapted to life in its natural habitat and needs to be kept in an artificially created environment.

"With the participation of the Directorate's employees, the bird was safely delivered to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and placed in the GBUK "Sakhalin Zoobotanical Park", where it is currently undergoing rehabilitation," the statement says.

White-tailed eagles live in the European part of Russia and in the north of the Far East. The average lifespan of this bird is 22-25 years. Even 60-year-old individuals were recorded under favorable habitat conditions. The total population is over 12 thousand individuals.
