Trip ideas: vacations, tours and getaways
Steller's sea eagle is one of the largest and most beautiful birds in the world, the largest representative of the falcon species
The average span of its wings is about 2.5 meters, a record one - 2 meters 83 centimeters. The mass of these feathered giants reaches 9 kg. It is among the ten largest predators of the world, along with a black vulture, a Filipino eagle (monkey eating), an Australian wedge-tailed eagle and a condor. If tourist activities coincide with vulnerable periods in the life cycle of a species, such as nesting, and if tourists approach animals at close distances to photograph or determine their species, animals may be disturbed.
The whole life of the Steller Eagle is closely related to the aquatic environment. Almost all nests are located at a distance of one and a half kilometers from the coast. Nests have a diameter of 1.6 meters and a height of one meter. During the breeding season, birds of prey inhabit the coast, in places where there are high cliffs with trees, and forest slopes alternate with bays, lagoons, estuaries of rivers.
The bird of prey is endowed with special weapons - everyone will recognize it. This beak, curved with a sharp hook, tearing prey into pieces, and claws piercing the victim in a dead grip, is a weapon of obviously offensive type, which these birds successfully use in their predatory raids.
Steller's sea eagle is named after German naturalist George Steller
Great is a sanitary role of birds of prey. Features of digestion allow some of them to eat the corpses of dead animals and fish, destroying sources of infection and not allowing the disease to spread. In late autumn, when salmon die, eagles gather in hundreds of individuals on the banks of the river, satiating themselves with abundant food. Ecological travel, man and the environment.
Since water resources do not know state boundaries, recreational activities that are carried out both directly on them and outside of them can affect their quality in protected areas. The destruction of nature is currently happening so rapidly that people of one generation are already witnesses of this. Steller's sea eagle is protected in accordance with the bilateral agreements that Russia has concluded with Japan, the United States, the DPRK and Korea on the protection of migratory birds.
Birds of prey are very important in nature. They regulate the number of many other animals. Given the enormous benefits brought by the birds, people are trying their best to protect them. Especially important role in the protection of birds are reserves and zoos. For the protection of birds in nature is of great importance not only the conservation of adult birds, but also the protection of their nests.
There are many examples of how local people exterminated birds of prey, and the number of other valuable animals for them, contrary to expectations, kept decreasing. Scientists have long proved that it is necessary not only to study the benefits or harm of birds, but also to try to strengthen their useful activity. Bringing birds to the fields, gardens, gardens, parks, forests brings positive results and increases the yield of various crops and the productivity of forests.
