Nature Preserves

Kamchatka belongs to all of humanity. The natural environment here is unique, fragile and requires human attention and protection.

A special system of nature sanctuaries, which take up over 28% of the Kamchatka peninsula, has been created. Under a common title of "Kamchatka's Volcanoes," six territories have been included in the UNESCO Natural Heritage List on the merit of their beauty, uniqueness, and recreational potential. They are the Kronotsky, the South-Kamchatka, the Klyuchevskoy, the Bystrinsky and the Nalychevo Nature Preserves and the South-Kamchatka Sanctuary. Four of the protected areas are part of the UN and the Global Ecology Fund's project titled "Preservation of Kamchatka's Bio-diversity." The project aims to preserve the peninsula's natural potential, to educate both the local population and the new-comers about Kamchatka's ecology, as well as to develop eco-tourism in the area.
