The Ministry of Nature Management and Ecology of the Republic of Bashkortostan invites interested persons to discuss the list of wild animals that are recommended for inclusion in the Red Data Book of the region, as well as for exclusion from it.

As the press-service of the Ministry informs, now the volume "Animals" is being prepared for reprinting including rare and endangered species of animals and plants in the territory of Bashkortostan. 114 species of wild animals are recommended for inclusion in the new edition, 23 species for exclusion from it. For example, it is proposed to exclude from the list swallowtail butterfly, gray goose, mute swan, gray partridge.
