Owing to the project “Let us save our environment”, the total number of the deer population released to the safeguarded natural reservations in Stavropol krai has increased significantly and keeps growing. In 2018 CPC helped in accommodating 11 species of sika deer in natural reservation “Russian Forest” and 24 species of red deer in natural reservations “Buguntinsky” and “Lesnaya Dacha”. In 2019 the Consortium took part in release of 10 species of sika deer in natural reservation “Russian Forest” and 4 species to the aviary of the Directorate for specially protected natural territories in Stavropol krai.
CPC is not only gradually implementing an important program of deer population recovery on the krai territory, but it also helps raise environment focused awareness of the young people through its environmental and educational project. The theme lessons were held among kindergarten kids, at orphanages, among secondary and high school and university students providing the kids and young children with useful information in the field of biology.
