Welcome to the new ECORA website. We are still adding content to the site so please check back again soon for updates.
ECORA is a Global Environment Facility (GEF) sponsored project initiated by Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) Working Group of the Arctic Council and the Russian Federation. ECORA is using an integrated ecosystem management (IEM) approach to conserve biodiversity and minimize habitat fragmentation in three selected model areas in the Russian Arctic. The Model Areas selected for ECORA are Kolguev Island in Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the Lower Kolyma River Basin in Yakutia (Sakha Republic), and the Beringovsky District in Chukotka Autonomous Okrug. ECORA will help to secure the integrity of some of the world's last remaining pristine areas and support livelihoods of indigenous and local peoples.
This website aims to make the results and lessons learned from ECORA available to a wide audience.
