State Nature Reserve Nurgush

A 5,653-hectare nature reserve is located in the south-eastern part of the Kotelnich area of the Kirov region. There are 50 lakes and 5 rivers on its territory.

Over 550 species of plants, 87 species of moss, 94 species of lichen, and 111 species of waterweeds grow here.

45 species of mammals, 193 species of birds, 6 species of crawlers, 7 species of amphibians, and about 30 species of fish are found in the reserved forests.

The elk, wild boar, wolf, badger, fox, otter, raccoon dog, beaver, and musk beaver are common inhabitants of the reserved forest. The Russian desman, a very rare animal, is found in floodplain lakes and quiet pools.

The white-tailed eagle and fish hawk are a true adornment of the nature reserve. 12 species of rare birds are registered in the Red Book of Russia: the black-throated loon, lesser white-fronted goose, golden eagle, snowy owl, oyster catcher, sea-eagle, harrier, red-breasted goose, and little tern.

Guests can walk along ecological paths. Tour guides and nature reserve guard inspections will not only acquaint the guests with the sights, but also teach them how to live in a forest without much detriment to the nature.
