Zapovednik "Daursky"

Address: 674480 Chitinskaya obl., Ononsky r-n, s. Nizhny Tcasutchey, Komsomolskaya st., 50, box 50.

Zapovednik Daursky, on the south of Chitinskaa Region, was founded in 1987, its area is 44, 8 thousand ha.

The Zapovednik occupies part of flat valley; it is made up of ecosystems of the Central-Asia Steppes. Absolute heights reach 700-800 m above sea level; at a height of 620 m above sea level Toreiskaya Kotlovina with its lakes of Zun-Torei and Barun-Torei is located. The hydrological regime of the lakes is variable, ranging from maximum flooding (a water cover of 80 thousand ha with a depth of 8 m) to complete drying off.

Across the Toreiskiye Lakes goes one of waterfowl 's greatest migration ways; the lakes are included in the List of Wetlands of International Significance.

Among steppe plants forbs associations prevail; in lowlands near mounds and at the lake shores sites of feather steppes can be met; in river mouths and along bays meadow-bog plants grow. A characteristic peculiarity of the Zapovednik is the diversity and variability of its plant forms on a comparatively small area.

Among the birds of the Zapovednik, 20 species are listed in the Red Data Book of Russia. The Zapovednik plays a part in providing the white-naped crane with reserve; a rare goose species swan goose lives in the Zapovednik. In the area is the only nesting place of the relic gull in the Asian part of the Russian Federation.

Of mammal species the following are noted in the Red Data Book: dzeren, Pallas' cat, and Erinaceus dauricus.

The Zapovednik is part of the "Toreiskiye ostrova" Wetland of International Significance. The Zapovednik controls the federal nature zakaznik of "Tsasucheichkiy bor" founded in 1988 on an area of 57,9 thousand ha. The Zapovednik has biosphere status.
