The group included the heads of model farms "Tiger", "The Bear", "Eagle" and "Borisov", which Amur branch of WWF Russia cooperated since 2000 to environmental management and conservation of rare and endangered plants and animals.

"The gained experience of Sweden in this field are revealing and useful for the burgeoning hunting Primorye, - Says Sergei Aramil, Coordinator of WWF Russia Amur Branch of biodiversity - We saw that move in the right direction, and those methods and techniques to increase the number of ungulates, which we recommend for hunting, are effective. However, it became clear to which we should strive. The knowledge gained will help achieve one of our main goals - to ensure that the ungulates have been in sufficient quantities, as for the Amur tiger, and for the people ".

The tour, which was formed by Swedish colleagues, diversified and rich. Thanks to their efforts of the Russian delegation visited the hunting reserves in the north and east of the country, the National Veterinary Institute, Swedish National Agency for Nature Conservation Association volunteers in Sweden, Scandinavia's largest zoo "Kolmården.

"The trip was extremely important, even for me, a professional Game Biologists, - Says Pavel Fomenko Program Coordinator, WWF Russia Amur Branch of biodiversity. - We met with the unique experience of the Swedes, based on knowledge of the people, their love and care for nature of their country. One of my strongest impressions was that the model of Hunting Sweden is very democratic - everyone, regardless of their social or financial status are involved in this process. This something that can be envied and need to learn.

The team visited the fertilizing grounds for deer, elk, deer, wild boar, deer, has witnessed a process of preparation of the feed mixture, to examine all types used in Sweden feeders.

A broad range of issues under discussion was: fertilizing species complexes, models feeders, types of feed mixtures, methods of organization and management of trophy hunting, relationships with users of hunting grounds tenants of agricultural land and forest rangers, the ratio of predators to the Swedes, educational courses for young hunters, education programs for the younger generation of country , environmental issues in Sweden.

"Before the trip I felt that the experience of hunting our two countries to compare properly, because the mentality of the Swedes and the Russians are different, - shares his impressions about the trip Sergei VoblyiDirector ohothozyaytsva "Eagle". - The trip has convinced me otherwise. In Sweden, I saw that the concept of the hunting industry of our countries is very similar, and realized how valuable will be the Swedish experience in my future work ".

Back home, the trip participants have begun to introduce new knowledge to work their farms. Some change their methods and modes of feeding, while others are preparing to introduce new types of feeders, such as feeders dosed type, equipped with a timer, and others are switching to other types of feeds and other methods of treatment.

WWF plans to organize a series of seminars on the transfer of the Swedish experience of the employees of other hunting Primorye and Khabarovsk Krai, who are interested in the conservation of wild ungulates that feed on rare predators of the Far East: Amur tiger and Amur leopard.

Being a swede and not living in a city it is really pathetic and sad that someone
actually thank the SWEDISH HUNTERS(?????????) for anything else than for the very
successful attempt to exterminate the swedish wolfs. The swedish hunters are a
group of(of course there are exceptions I guess..somewhere...??) people who are
NOT interested in "the swedish nature" although that is expressed as soon anything
is said about what the swedish hunters. They are not interested in keeping
anything alive unless it´s on their huntinglist. They are so embarrassing to listen
to! Claiming They know better than biologists and zoologist and the veterinarians and caretakers of Scandinavia's largest zoo "Kolmården". It surprises me that the swedish hunters could actually work together with people who DO CARE for the wildlife and nature of our country!!! Really!! But I suppose they could make new contacts in russia so they might get a better "cheaper" way into the russian hunting to maybe kill a few tigers to put on their trofe-wall:: I might sound sarcastic but living here, knowing the history and the present, I really I find the whole thing revolting. I have met MANY MANY swedish hunters and they really are an exeptional kind of species. I tend to wonder if you who thank the swedish hunters is exactly that : Swedish
hunters,who is trying to to make the "death patrols" look like a caring lot.`?? I think you have a naive view of the swedes.. Like everywhere else we have good ones and bad ones... But to read this praise of the swedish hunters is almost like I throw up!! The other organizations are okey, but not a lot that almost killed every elk not so many years ago instead of leaving them alone at least one or two years.. There actually WAS one or two(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) small hunting teams who decided to leave the elk for 1 or 2 years and they should get an applaud for that, but that´s it! I don´t know where you got your "image" of the swedish hunters but it was not from reality, because that is where I live : In the realty of Sweden with its plus and minus.. I love my country but this false picture of them as nature-lovers is a complete sham. Sorry if I sound hard, I just want you to know reality.. I am all for love , care and understanding. Killing is just not on my wish-list
