Last year in March in the Moscow region took place the first practical seminar-conference “Breeding game species as a way of preserving hunting resources. Modern approach. Technologies. Problems. Prospects» organized by LLC DeerLand with the support of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation.
The aim of the event was to discuss problems, trends and prospects for the development of breeding game species in Russia and to get acquainted with the experience and modern technologies of breeding used in a number of European countries.
The topic attracted great interest. 93 representatives from 26 constituent territories of the Russian Federation, including heads and specialists of public and subordinated authorities, public organizations, private businesses, foreign specialists from Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic participated in the seminar-conference.
Participants of the seminar-conference regretted the scarcity of the meetings of this kind in Russia.
Responding to the request, LLC “DeerLand” planned to hold the next practical seminar “Breeding game species-2018″, which will be held March 19-23, 2018.
Taking into account the special attention of the participants to the successful experience of Russian hunting users, it was decided to hold an event in one of the hunting farms of the Kaluga region – “Ozernoe”. For many years this farm is not only engaged in breeding ungulates and feathered game, but it is an example of a successful business project as well.
Among the list of speakers at the seminar are representatives of local hunting farms which became familiar with modern methods of breeding game species and representatives from Poland, Slovakia and Latvia.
The program of the seminar includes three working days (March 20-22). These days there will be plenary sessions with relevant and interesting talks, round tables, as well as an excursion to the hunting complex of the hunting farm “Ozernoe”.
This year we will try to make the seminar really “practical.” We want the participants to spend time with maximum efficiency and receive a lot of useful information.

The Vice-president of IDUBA Tofig Hasanov explained to the President of Azerbaijan the potential of IDUBA during the opening of the Shamakhi Safari Park

According to News Agency Day.Az with reference to AZERTADZH (Azerbaijan State News Agency) one of the widespread types of ecotourism in the modern period is safari tourism.
Due to the fact that the traditional safari is forcing animals to face the threat of extinction, recently the organizers refuse the hunting tours and focus on photosafari. Photosafari is also called “quiet hunting”. Azerbaijan also has wide range of opportunities for carrying out photosafari tours. Natural areas, specially protected in various parts of our country – national parks, reserves can play an important role in attracting foreign tourists to such tours. Questions related to this topic are reflected in the Strategic Roadmap for the Development of a Specialized Tourism Industry in Azerbaijan, approved by President Ilham Aliyev’s Decree of December 6, 2016. The Strategic Roadmap plans a cooperation between the Ministry of Culture and Tourism with the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources in order to carry out a research to assess the opportunities of ecological tourism in Azerbaijan. Then, they will prepare a plan of events related to the organization of various tourist activities in national parks. They will also make a schedule of appropriate activities for the created routes. One of the important points is that this document shows as an asset and source of opportunities the creation of the Shamakhi Safari Park, managed by Azer Ekov company, led by our IDUBA vicepresident Tofig Hasanov.
At present, the Shamakhi Safari Park is ready and already accepted the first guests of honor. During the visit to the park, the head of state and the first lady were informed that Azer Ekov LLC, established in Azerbaijan in 2014 with the aim of organizing ecological hunting on the scientific bases, adaptation of wildlife species to the nature of Azerbaijan, in a short time began to work in this direction. The president of Azerbaijan was informed that the first step of “Azər Ekov” LLC was to became the member of Deer and Wild Ungulate breeders Association – IDUBA. Also that later, by decision of IDUBA president in order to promote the huge potential of deer and wild ungulate breeding in this area through Mr. Tofig Hasanov, he was appointed Vice President of IDUBA for Transcaucasia and the Middle East. Thus, “Azər Ekov” LLC was given the right to represent this association in the South Caucasus. Finally, the president was informed that thanks to the meetings coorganized by IDUBA, the members of the organization shared their opinions on breeding animals, hunting, antler trading, producing feed and feed supplements, etc. with “Azər Ekov” LLC, and that this company and Mr. Tofig Hasanov took part in the events of this association as an equal member and sponsor. The aim was to acquire international experience and attracting the interest of foreign specialists to the Azerbaijani nature.
The president was also informed of the characteristics of the safari park. Following the Strategic Roadmap for the Development of a Specialized Tourism Industry in Azerbaijan in order to create an ecological reserve for wild animals in the Shamakhi district, 620 hectares on the territory of a mountainous woodland called Pirgulu were chosen for the reserve. Within these, 480 hectares were fenced in accordance with international standards. Here, 420 genetically valuable animals were released belonging to three species: red deer, fallow deer and mouflon from farms of Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary. As a result of the selective breeding and veterinarian actions, the number of these animals has almost doubled. So, at the present moment there are 790 animals in the park, including 260 red deers, 250 mouflons and 280 fallow deer. An important work was also done in order to create the internal infrastructure of the ecological park. So, a wide road with a length of 36 kilometers was laid. In addition, a large number of natural shelters for animals were created. In order to protect deer, fallow deer and mouflons from external influences and infectious diseases, a 52-kilometer fencing that meets international standards has been built.
An administrative building and a guest house are also built on the territory of the park. The territory of the administrative building and the guest house were landscaped as well. You get more information following the link to two videos on this topic.
