There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

credits to Orphan bear rescue center

Yesterday, June 8, 2021, Valentin Sergeevich Pazhetnov passed away.

We lost our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, founder and inspiration of the family, who united the generation of the Pazhetnov family - salvation and rehabilitation of the orphans.
Valentin Sergeevich is a world-famous biologist who devoted most of his life to studying the environment and behavior of a brown bear.
Along with scientific work, Valentin Sergeevich paid special attention to work with children and youth, many generations of pupils of Eco School "Medvezhata" and guests of the "Clean Forest" biostation thankfully remember Grandfather Valia for kindness, wisdom, honesty , sincerity and simplicity in communication.
The memory of this wonderful man will forever remain in the hearts of his relatives, friends, colleagues and everyone who knew him.

Founder of the Center. Honored ecologist of Russia, doctor of biological sciences, chief researcher of the Central Forest state nature biosphere reserve, developer of a unique method of growing orphans, founder of the biological station "Clean forest". Author of many scientific works and popular science books. His book "My friends bears" (1985) has been translated and reprinted in several countries

The Orphan Bear Rescue Center is located in Bubonitsy village of Tver Region, 450 km northwest of Moscow.

The Center rescues, rehabilitates, raises, and prepares orphaned brown bear cubs for independent survival in the wild. Specialists of the Center release rehabilitated cubs into the wild and carry out post-release monitoring to check if the cubs adapt well to their natural habitats.

Since the 1970s Valentin Pazhetnov runs experimental studies of the behavior of the brown bear from birth to independence. In the 1990s they were formed into a unique method of rearing orphaned bears with the possibility of returning to the wild. During the work of the Center 229 bears were rehabilitated by the method of Pazhetnov and released back into the forest. These recommendations have been successfully applied both for the rehabilitation of brown bear cubs and other bear species, helping to preserve the population in Russia, Korea and India.
