#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Canada, the USA, Norway, Greenland and Russia have agreed to cooperate in preserving polar bears from extinction. The meeting of these countries’ representatives was held online, the head of Rosprirodnadzor Svetlana Radionova reported on her social networks.

“The meeting discussed the results of joint work on the Circumpolar Action Plan approved in 2015, new measures for the next two years and conflicts between the Red Bookers and humans”, explained the department head.

According to her, among the main threats to animals listed in the Red Book is access to populated areas.

“To ensure the safety of people and animals, our service has created a special working group. Over the past four years, the group has reviewed more than 20 conflict situations. We carried out several unique operations – thanks to joint efforts, we managed to avoid the rare animals’ death”, Svetlana Radionova said.

We previously reported that in September 2022, a polar bear was injured in Dikson – the animal’s hind legs were paralyzed. With the Nornickel company’s support, the Red Booker was taken to the Moscow Zoo, where he received proper care and treatment. However, due to an infection, Dikson – as the bear was named after the village – died. At the end of October this year, a polar bear appeared again in Dikson, he is not afraid of either people or dogs.
