Elk Island bio station tour


Did you know how fast a moose can run and swim? What does wild boars’ family life look like?
What is the favorite food of a deer? Join our tour to Elk bio station and learn more incredible facts about animals living in the Elk Island.
Moscow is known as a very green city, it’s also famous for its Losiny Ostrov National Park located within the city limits. Losiny Ostrov is the first National park in Russia and also one of a few locations in Moscow where one can see wild animals in their natural environment, including the moose. In total there are 44 species of mammals and 170 bird species, 9 amphibian species, 5 reptile species and 19 fish species
During the tour of the station we’ll be able to see elks and even pet and feed them. We’ll also have a chance to see a herd of deer coming to eat vegetables brought by the bio station staff. In summer time they can find plenty of food in the forest so it’ll be impossible to see them coming so closely. We’ll also be able to see wild boars and learn about their habits.  Elks and wild boars would be dangerous animals in the wild nature but the ones living in the park are very used to human beings and very friendly.
We would recommend that you bring some carrots and apples to make an elk and boars happy. The station staff will provide you with some food to feed but it’s always nice to offer the animals something extra!
