National Park'.
Narrator 1: "Moscow is the largest city in Europe. It is a very green city if compared to
other cities 'comparable size in Western Europe and America. ... There are 96 parks in Moscow....
Losiny Ostrov National Park is presumed to be the largest forest in a city of comparable size. ...
Losiny Ostrov National Park was created in 1983 on the land which since ancient time
served as the strictly guarded hunting area of Russian tsars. ... Losiny Ostrov is located in the
region of mixed forest. This means that birch (береза), oak (дуб), maple (клен) and other warmer-
weather trees mix with the vegetation of the taiga, including the pine (сосна), fir (пихта; ель) and
spruce (ель) trees. The Losiny Ostrov Nations Nature Park sits just on the boundary of the city and
its northwestern suburbs, meaning that wildlife thrives close to the capital. More than 200 animal
species make their home in the park including wild boar (кабан), roe deer (косуля) and elk (лось),
along with beavers (бобер) and otters (выдра). The birds in the park include partridges
(куропатка), pheasants (фазан) and egrets (цапля).”
Narrator 2: “Moscow's population is growing, which means greater industrial activity, both
of which can have a negative effect on the environment and the species that live within it.
However, the government is making efforts to protect its natural resources.
In summer 2010 Prime Minister Vladimir Putin visited the Losiny Ostrov national park on
the eve of Ecologist Day. He went to the local biological research station and talked with a group
of schoolchildren who were there on an excursion."
