Year: 2020, Number: 2, Pages: 121-139

The “Tokinsko-Stanovoy” National Park was approved in December 2019, it is located in the north of the Amur Region, occupies 257 thousand ha. The national park was created thanks to the work of several generations of naturalists. The first proposals for organizing special nature conservation of the ridge Tokinskiy Stanovik were made in 1912 by soil scientist N. I. Prokhorov. The main significance of the park is the preservation of the natural complexes of the tributaries of the Zeya River, which provides the bulk of the water of the Zeya reservoir. The national park preserves the hunting grounds and deer pastures of Evenk clan communities. Involving Evenks in providing eco-tourism will improve the lives of indigenous people. In the lakes of the National Park, you can see many species of birds that nest and rest during migrations. The Siberian Crane and Black Crane are listed in the Red Books of the Amur Region, Russia and IUCN. The national park also plays an important role in the conservation of rare species of animals. The main part of the Allen sheep (Ovis nivicola alleni) live in the park, residential settlements of black-capped marmots (Marmota camtschatica), listed in the Red Book of the Amur Region. The highlands of the Stanovoi Range are promising for the development of eco-tourism. Glaciers, rocky outcrops, deep circuses, sharp ridges of ridges, karst lakes, clear mountain rivers and numerous waterfalls are very picturesque. The Tok River has a rapids section; this place is used by water tourists for sports rafting.
