Teberda National Biosphere Reserve

Teberdinsky Zapovednik, in Russia's Caucasus Mountains, preserves one of the planet's most diverse temperate ecosystems in its near pristine state. The protected area is situated along a vertical shift of 3,000 meters on the northern spurs of the Great Caucasus Range in the Karachaevo-Cherkesia Republic. Majestic mountains with sharp summits and toothed ridges shroud enormous amphitheaters of ice and snow. Below, emerald alpine meadows and dark green conifer forests teem with Caucasian chamois and endemic West Caucasian tur. The Caucasian bison, once near extinction, now thrives in the sanctity of this nature reserve. Teberdinsky was granted UNESCO biosphere status in 1997.
