Conservation of natural ecosystems is one of the main priorities of the nature reserve. For this reason, an especially strict protection regime is enforced on the territory of the reserve: all economic activities are prohibited in the reserve, as well as visitation without a special permit from the reserve administration.
The ranger staff (state enforcenment inspectors) are charged with: preventing poaching, collecting preliminary scientific data, carrying out animal censuses (wintermammal surveys, grouse surveys, etc.), accompanying scientists, and working with visitors, to name but a few of the rangers' tasks.
Forest roads and trails entering the reserve are marked with signposts and gates so that any person in the woods can see where the reserve begins. The reserve border is marked with blue paint on trees and posts around its perimeter.
Reserve state enforcement inspectors are permitted by law to carry and use firearms and special equipment while on duty.
