ABOUT US >>

 

 

We are Irina and Vadim, a couple and zoologists. We live in the Naust hamlet, which is about 15 km deep in Naliboki Forest. We do zoological research in this semi-natural terrain and try to succeed in ecotourist business.

 

 

Vadim has been in zoological studies since 1982, Doctor of Biology since 1989, Professor since 2007. Generally, the main field of his zoological interests was population ecology of carnivores and also other species of vertebrate predators as well as analysis of vertebrate predator-prey community in the transitional mixed forest in Belarus. In the last decade and nowadays he has mainly investigated population biology of the wolf (Canis lupus) and lynx (Lynx lynx). 

 

Irina took part in the various studies on the population ecology of carnivores in Naliboki Forest and Paazerie Forest since 2004. She specialized in the comprehensive problem of the badger population decline even in semi-natural habitats. Across the multi-annual studies, the decline causes were more or less revealed. Besides the badger, Irina is familiar with the wolf and lynx due to long-term assistance to Vadim in the studies on the species.
