REGENERATION OF MISSING SPECIES
- Willow ptarmigan

Willow ptarmigan

In the period 2005-2013, the possibility of regeneration of the Central Russian Willow ptarmigan (Lagopus lagopus rossicus Serebr) in the Nizhny Novgorod Trans-Volga region was studied.

The Central Russian Willow ptarmigan listed in the Red Data Book of Russia has not been nesting in the Nizhny Novgorod region since the 1970s. Since 2005, there have been works carried out to test the technology of captive catching and keeping willow ptarmigans in captivity. In 2009, a brood with parents was released to the Maslovo bog in the reserve.
