On September 15th three sides signed the agreement on the construction of a hatchery for breeding chamois and bezoar goats. They are the Fund of Development of the mountain hunting established by the Club of Mountain Hunters, Federal state budgetary institution "Nalchinsky state experimental hunting farm "(Kabardino-Balkaria) and Limited liability company "DeerLand". The aim of the project is to breed and to release animals into the wild what helps to improve the number of populations of these species. LLC “DeerLand” has already developed the project of the hatchery in accordance with the highest international standards. This company, as the contractor of the project, provides the entire complex of preparatory and construction works. The FSBI "Nalchinsky state experimental hunting farm» provides from its side the territory where the hatchery will be built and will engage in further work support. The CMH is responsible for the financial side of the project. It’s the first one but we hope that it’ll help to develop the methods for semi-free keeping of mountain species of rare and hunting animals.
The Caucasian chamois is listed to the Red Book of rare species in some of the regions on the North Caucasus. The population of these animals is at stake now. The Bezoar Goat is a rare species and it’s listed to the Federal Red Book. The CMH has initiated the scientific programs, aimed to reproduce the number of the population of chamois and goats on the North Caucasus. All-Russian Research Institute of Environmental Protection “Ecology” (Federal state budgetary institution) did a great job and prepared the scientific program by the Bezoar Goat. The program for Caucasian chamois was developed together with the Department of state policy and regulation in the field of hunting and Federal state budgetary institution "Federal center for hunting development" of the Ministry of natural resources of the Russian Federation.
Completion of the complex is planned on the March 1, 2021. The first turn which includes the cages and the infrastructure, needed for the first animals, will be ready to end of 2020.
