By Alexander Kurets, "21.by" To portray Belovezhskaya Pushcha without bison is simply impossible. Meanwhile, there have been times when bison did not inhabit the area of this Forest at all. Can such a situation happen again? According to scientists and experts' estimations, it is possible if no serious approach to preserve and increase the population of European bison. This topic was in the focus of an international seminar on the concept of the Program of the Union State "Creating the optimal natural habitat of European bison as a guarantee of its long-term preservation", held in the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha". Debate was preceded by several meetings to develop the concept of the Program on the long-term preservation of bison and ways to implement it.

By Larisa Rakovskaya, "Zvyazda" (The Star) newspaper Some politicians have called once the creation of the CIS as "civilized divorce". But the "divorce without separation" requires the searching the joint things, which bring one to the other and unite together. There are many factors capable of such the role - this is our memory, shared past, language, mentality, cultural and humanitarian relations. However, not everyone knows about yet another "togetherness" for the Commonwealth - bison. Today, bison within the territory of the Commonwealth live in Belarus and Ukraine, in different regions of Russia, in Moldova, Kyrgyzstan and Azerbaijan. The twentieth century got the loss of salvation. A Roadmap. A Belarus' proposal to colleagues in the Commonwealth.

"Wild Nature" Although the world's largest population of bison (more than 360 animals on the Belarusian side, and totally about 800 ones together with the Polish side) live in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, the issue on bison preservation is still topical. And earlier this month, scientists of Belarus, Russia and Poland gathered in the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha" to discuss this problem. It is planned to transport the animals in Russia, where they will get more space for life. The "Road Map for Bison" is developed for the resettlement of the animals. Scientists have proposed the creation of several populations of up to 300 animals. The rule is the animals have to move freely from one population to another. In case of the successful implementation of the program is expected to increase the number of bison in Russia and Belarus several times greater.

If it does, how can it be seen?
By Nina Polutskaya, "Belarusian Partisan" 2013 Forum of the Belarusian environmental nongovernmental organizations was held in Minsk on October 18 to 20. It is necessary to open eyes that to see this movement. It means not only to look at the TV, where the information is strictly metered out, but use the Internet. You will be pleasantly shocked at the number and quality of websites and portals of Belarusian environmental organizations. In total, there are only about a hundred in Belarus; about 70 of them are officially registered. I made a discovery at the Forum – the green movement exists in Belarus. It is a pity that the Forum has not caused much interest among the official state structures. It would not hurt to them to look at the degree of management and professionalism for the NGOs' work. There are failures, but there are also successes. For example, Belovezhskaya Pushcha enlarged its conservation area almost twice as much - great respect to Heorhi Kazulka. There are examples of other achievements. But it is terribly difficult to break through concrete bureaucratic barriers.

By Alexander MITIUKOV, "Zarya" (The Down) newspaper There was a decision in Belovezhskaya Pushcha how to save the population.

It is time to change it to a higher quality level. To do it, red deer should be in the center of this. In the XIX century red deer was specially brought to Belovezhskaya Pushcha for imperial hunting. Now it's time to revive this beautiful kind of hunting. Of course, it is much easier to deal with wild boar. The hunting management of red deer is more complicated. An interesting line of red deer was created in Belovezhskaya Pushcha in the late XIX to early XX centuries, as animals were imported from 10 sites.

By Nina SCHARBOCHEVICH , "Tourism and Leisure" Prior to 2007, only one archaeological site of the primitive era - near the village of Kamenyuki - was known in Belovezhskaya Pushcha. Primarily, it belonged to the Iron Age and was treated as a settlement of the Milogradsk culture. As a result of exploration along banks of the Lesnaya River, other small streams and around the Pyshcha's territory, more than 50 archaeological monuments of the Stone, Bronze, Iron ages and later time was found. There was no information about the history of primitive life in the region before, so all of these materials can be considered a sensation.

By Elena Tribuleva, "Vecherniy Brest" (The Evening Brest) newspaper In the last days of July, a regional show of hunting trophies was held in the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha" under the guidance of Vladimir Zubco, the expert of the Republican category on assessment of hunting trophies. It is ironic, but until now the National Park almost did not carry out the evaluation of hunting trophies gained in its territory. In most cases, trophies were only weighed to give the price for a lucky hunter to pay. The value of the extracted trophies can be used for the evaluation of the general state of the population of game animals. Our hunting grounds are mostly focused on financial performance and economic efficiency. Thus, the task of rangers is to make selective shooting so as to keep the best producers and create a healthy population.

Here is a sculpture of bison killed by Alexander II in the Bialowieza Forest in October of 1860. But more often a tradition from the Middle Age was actual - to keep the antlers and skins of trophies.

"Zooplandia" Russian and Belarusian scientists are preparing a project. At one time, the population of these animals had to be restored from the five preserved animals. They have been released to Belovezhskaya Pushcha in a nursery, specially built for them. This has led to the depletion of the gene pool, and as a result, to weakening the species. During the study, the researchers will examine the strengths and weaknesses of Belarusian bison. And then, due to the competent cross-breeding, they will improve the health of all animals. Subsequently, part of the Bialowieza bison will be settled in other countries. According to experts, the number of these animals in Belarus has long exceeded the optimum.

"Charter 97" Olga, many learned about you, as a representative of the Committee on International Control over the Human Rights Situation in Belarus, for the first time after the events of December 19, 2010 in Minsk. How did you become a human rights activist? When did you, a Russian human rights activist, seriously engage in the human rights situation in Belarus? First it was the environment. Besides Bandazhevski and all these "radioactive" cases, we have been defending Belovezhskaya Pushcha. When the current figures from the government actively destroyed it, we have tried to preserve the National Park, to save something of natural. We have carried on a good international campaign. It has been quite a lot of noise, but eventually environmentalists had to leave. Then I was warned that is better not to come to Belarus. But we were back on December 19, 2010. It was necessary internationally to save Belarusians who were jailed after the presidential election. Solidarity is our duty. There is such a law - if you did not come to the rescue, then no one will save you either. We understood that Russia can get the same situation, or close to that. In general, virtually we were right.

By Alexandra Goryashko, "School Materials" In the early days of their appearance, they were called more euphonious and clear – wilderness strict reserves, wildlife sanctuaries, commandments, sacred forests or praying forests, and no entry areas. If you carefully listen to these words, they prompt what the current protected areas started from. There were only two reasons for protection from mass recreation. When did people start to protect nature? Why do they need? How are they managed? What are they? How to get to the strictly protected nature reserve? Reliable dating of the establishment of protected areas is starting from the XIII century. It was then that Prince Daniel Galich (1220-1264) issued a decree to create a "great strict reserve within the borders" of the today's Bialowieza Forest and Tsumanskaya Forest. Bialowieza Forest started from there as the oldest nature reserve in Europe now.

By G. Kozhevnikov, "Kiev Ecological and Cultural Center" We are talking about the situation in protected areas we have in Russia. How to understand the very idea of strictly protected areas? It can be understood differently. Some can consider "a strictly protected site" as a perfectly managed hunting ground, where hunting is a rare case and it does not bring any harm to the welfare of wild game, and where there is a certain kind of concern for game. The famous Bialowieza Forest is an example of such a protected area. Some can call it "a nature strict reserve". But I personally am holding a different opinion and cannot consider it a protected area. The Bialowieza Forest is nothing more than a well-managed and carefully guarded hunting ground.

By Andrzej Ermaczek, "Kiev Ecological and Cultural Center" Passive protection is a form of nature conservation, namely, to ensure the object from external influences and to avoid influences, at least at this time. This concept has already experienced its heyday. In recent years, after the inventory of areas of "Natura 2000", in a situation when requirements for their protection are not entirely clear and management plans are absent everywhere, passive protection again came into favor. However, it is realized mainly not because of confidence or accepted recommendations of scientists, but "just in case". Certain reserves long protected from interference or core areas of national parks with strict protection (the Bialowieza National Park as the most famous example of the area with absolutely strict protection) are examples of passive protection.

There are attempts to reintroduce some extinct species in Belarus, but hunting species basically get the right for the new life. Naviny.by spoke about the reasons for the disappearance of the animals in Belarus and their possible reintroduction to Professor Mikhail Nikiforov, Director General of the Scientific and Practical Center for Bioresources at the National Academy of Sciences. Animals do not have time to adapt. Reintroduction of the animals. Belovezhskaya Pushcha is mentioned, in which extinct species lived and were reintroduced.

"Hunting and Fishing" The history of dissemination of red deer in the Russian plain. The tradition of trophy hunting for red deer. Askania Nova. Voronezh Reserve. Belovezhskaya Pushcha. First red deer were delivered into Pushcha's forest in 1865. In total, 522 ani,als were imported from the Carpathian Mountains, the Alps and the lowland Western Europe. A big population was formed. Then it was reduced to the number of 6 or 8 individuals in the 20-ies of XX century, after the vicissitudes of World War II. At least 1,500 deer were moved from Belovezhskaya Pushcha to Belarus, eastern Poland, Germany, the Baltic countries and to Ukraine. During 150 years, this group of animals had breeding in isolation, "in itself", without hybridization with other groups.

"Official web-portal of Poland" Where to see the bison, the lord of the Polish forests? You can visit one of the reserves, to go to places in Europe where they live or just use the Internet. The first bison were returned to freedom in Bialowieza Forest in 1929. Today there are about four thousand individuals in the world and half of them live in Central Europe. In Poland three-quarters of the local population of these big mammals live in freedom – in Bialowieza Forest first of all, as well as in Bieszczady, Masuria and Western Pomerania. The most famous fence is in Bialowieza Forest.

By Alla GOLODOK, "Mass-Media Portal" Unusual English lesson was recently held at school Ή 3 of the Svisloch town. The guys interacted with their peers in Japan on-line. First, the guys exchanged general information about the countries in which they live, and made a presentation. Then our party asked 3 questions to Japanese children. They were related to the national cuisine, our country's capital and animals inhabiting Belovezhskaya Pushcha. Japanese children answered that pizza is our national dish, but the capital of Belarus and the main animal of Belovezhskaya Pushcha were identified correctly.

By Jadwiga KOBRINETS, "BELSMI.BY" On February 21, the United States Agency for International Development' Project (USAID) "Local Entrepreneurship and Economic Development", implemented by UNDP, summed up the contest of tourist destinations of Grodno and Brest regions. The destination "Land of Pushcha's Wonders and Mysteries" from the Svisloch deistrict was among the winners. The Svisloch district has a huge potential for the development of rural tourism due to its environment and natural resources - a unique ancient forest, artificial lakes, bog "Wild" and clean air; that's the Biosphere Reserve and National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha". Possibilities of our country can successfully develop tourism in the different areas: sports, culture, education, recreation and wellness.

By Vasily Karpinchik, "Gaydpark" The deportation of the various categories of Polish citizens living in the western regions of the BSSR was one of the most terrible and inhuman episodes of "Sovietization" of Western Belarus after September 1939. Four waves of evictions of citizens from Western Belarus have been. Here are just a few memories of witnesses and victims of that terrible campaign. Hanna Swiderska from the village of Bialowieza recalled that before the war her father was an inspector of the state forest. On February 11, 1940, all roads leading out of the Bialowieza Forest were blocked by the NKVD, so that no one "Polish pan" could run away. The family of the forest ranger from Bialowieza was put in van-wagons and taken to somewhere in the east. As it turned out, it was to Siberia.

By Vasily Karpinchik, "BelStroyTsentr" Going abroad, few people think about the fact that all the border crossing points have a certain status. There are only two of them - the international and interstate. Of 6 crossings on the western border, one car crossing - "Peschatka" - has the interstate status. This means that only citizens of Belarus and Poland have the right to cross it. But "Peschatka" will also change its status to an international one in two years. Border Crossing "Peschatka", located in Kamenets district, next to the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha", was developed in 1993 in the so-called temporary scheme. Recently, the State Customs Committee of the Republic of Belarus has come to the conclusion that the checkpoint is not outdated. With the expansion of the checkpoint, there will be new opportunities for tourists from different foreign countries. A highway of 200 km length around the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha" is functioning for about a year and originates from this border crossing.

By Vera Arteaga, "Respublika" (The Republic) newspaper Scientists are preparing a project for partial relocation of the forest giant. The first forest giants appeared in Belarus in the 40s of the last century in the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha". Our country makes home in the wild live for about ten bison micropopulations with a total of close to thousand animals (this is the world's second largest after Poland). The biggest population is in Belovezhskaya Pushcha - more than 450 bison; Ozery and Osipovichi have almost 200. Today there is a problem - what to do and which way to take? During the 15 years of the program on bison conservation, resettlement and use in Belarus, the number of species has increased almost threefold. Bison are to be settled in other regions. Belarus is a small country, while Russia is huge. Today, there is an interest of both states to settle bison, so it could live on a huge range. That is a guarantee it will be saved in the long term.

"Tourism in Belarus" It's no secret that people are part of nature. However, with the advancement of technology, the humans are like being taken out of their natural environment: more concrete and glass around us, and less greenery and trees. More and more people are beginning to feel the lack of contact with nature and wildlife. The desire to spend time in the pristine natural areas not only makes sense, but also is useful - as you know, the contact with nature stabilizes the psycho-emotional state of the person. This kind of travel is called "eco-tourism", and the money earned from it aims by the government at the protection and support of conservation areas of the country. Perhaps one of the most popular objects of this type of tourism in Belarus is a truly unique place - the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha".

There is one important "but" in this judicial saga.

Eugene Pawlowski have already waited us at the gate to the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha". After greeting, he said "Get a pass for the car and go." The very location of the Outpost in Belovezhskaya Pushcha Gate says a lot. We followed the frontier car through the Forest about 20 kilometers and admired the snow-covered giant trees. Fabulous scenery and unreal silence somehow peculiarly emphasized the proximity to the border. The specifics of the oldest Outpost. That's such autonomy. Parallel paths.

In December 1991, heads of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine signed in Belovezhskaya Pushcha a historic agreement that marked the demise of the USSR and established the Commonwealth of Independent States. At the end of last year, "KP" was trying to find a Belarusian-language version of the Belovezhskaya Agreement, which, as it turned out, never existed.

By A. Raevskaya, "Belarusian Green Portal" In early February, one year has passed since the signing of the Presidential Decree No 59, which provided for a significant expansion of the strictly protected area of the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha". How has this event had an influence upon the situation in Belovezhskaya Pushcha? We asked PhD of Biology Heorhi Kazulka to tell about this as he was directly involved in the issues of the preservation of the Belovezhskaya Pushcha for many years. What is currently the situation regarding the prolongation of the European Diploma? Unsolved problems. Belovezhskaya Pushcha is also a place of special spiritual power coming from the living Earth. Pushcha has a great spiritual potential. It is holy and sacred place. Bialowieza Forest is to get the spiritual status and become a center of spiritual rebirth and spiritual enlightenment (education).
January 31, 2013| Clumsy neighbors for bison to appear
By Valentina Kozlovich, "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" (The Russian Newspaper) newspaper Belovezhskaya Pushcha will be "testing ground" for the joint environmental projects in Belarus and Russia. Russia will help "Belovezhskaya Pushcha" to re-introduce the brown bear population. The last bear was killed in Pushcha in the XIX century. The attempts to return the predator in Bialowieza were taken before the war. But this venture failed. The increase of the strictly protected area of the National Park in half gives the opportunity to come back brown bear to the land of Pushcha. The development of the project began last year. In fact, today 428 bison live in Belovezhskaya Pushcha - with the optimal number of 300 animals.

By Nikolai Cherkas, "Vecherniy Brest" (The Evening Brest) newspaper Whether will the largest predator be returned in Belovezhskaya Pushcha? In January of 2013, the project for the reintroduction of brown bears in the forest ecosystems of Belovezhskaya Pushcha will be finalized. The issue on the reintroduction of brown bears into the Forest is quite complex and requires careful consideration of all aspects of the problem. Still, I hope the brown bear as the largest carnivore in Belarus will be returned to the Bialowieza Forest; the trophic pyramid of the ancient forest will be at last restored, and Forest will get back the status of the primeval forest, alas, lost at present.
