Great Arctic Reserve

  • The largest reserve not only in Russia, but in the whole Eurasia. Its area is 41692.22 sq. km, i.e. the whole Switzerland can fit on the territory of the Great Arctic Reserve!
  • In contrast to other reserves, the Great Arctic Reserve has industrial areas: for example, in some places oil is extracted.
  • The reserve is home to wild polar bears.
  • Most of the reserve is never visited by people because of its difficult accessibility. Many parts of the reserve can only be reached by air and only when the weather is good, which is not every day in these parts.
  • In the summertime, especially brave tourists can take part in rafting on the rivers flowing in the reserve. The route along the river Efremov is very popular.

Wrangel Island

  • The reserve on Wrangel Island is one of the most northern in the world, in 2004 it was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
  • Remains of mammoths were found on the island! True, dwarf. Most likely, the small size of mammoths was due to the scarcity of food that could be found on the island. The small size of the animals made it easier for the natives to hunt them, making them a source of essential meat, fat and fur.
  • The climate on the island is so harsh that winds and blizzards could blow up to 140 kilometers per hour. The minimum temperature recorded on the island is minus 57 ° C, the maximum is only plus 18 ° C. Snows and frosts reign on the island nine months out of 12. The weather, to put it mildly, is not resort-like.
  • Severe environmental conditions deprived the island of both amphibians and reptiles. Animals just can not adapt to such extreme conditions for life. But the island is inhabited by about 30 species of arthropods, there are even butterflies. Freshwater lakes are empty, there are no fish in them at all.
  • But walruses gladly make their rookeries on the beaches of Wrangel Island, the most populous in the country! And the weather does not matter to them.

Kronotsky reserve

  • The reserve is rightfully considered “the hottest” in Russia: the famous Valley of Geysers is located on its territory. It is also worth mentioning 25 volcanoes, eight of which are active.
  • Kronotsky reserve is one of the oldest nature reserves of Russia. It was founded as a state nature reserve in 1934 on the place of Sobolin Zakaznik which had existed since 1882.
  • Some herbs, growing on the territory of the reserve, can reach four meters in height! This is quite enough to hide not only any animal, but also a rider on a horse.
  • Kronotsky Reserve has its own Valley of Death. It is located in the upper reaches of the Geyzernaya river at the foot of Kikhpinych volcano. For a long time scientists could not understand the reason of death of animals, birds and insects, which fell in this place.

First, the corpses of rodents appear in the valley. Seeing an easy prey, foxes descend from the mountain slopes to them and … also die. Wolverines and bears follow, and their carcasses are quite often found in the valley. Crows and eagles fly to the carrion and, like everyone else, also stay here forever. At the same time, people who have been here have not experienced any adverse effects. It all turned out to be jets of gas containing a lot of hydrogen sulfide, carbon disulfide and carbon dioxide, rising from the very bowels of the volcano and flowing on the ground.
