On this page you can see photos of animals and plants that live in the Kandalaksha nature reserve and the neighbourhood.

All photos were taken by staff and volunteers at the reserve.
All photos are taken inside the reserve.


Also, there are photos that show the life and work of people in the reserve.


  Our rule for this page is to use only original photos. So here's a not a complete collection of our animals. For example, the brown bear is a common animal in the reserve. But we were not able to make a good photo. Let's wait for the happy event ..
