Volga-Akhtuba Floodplain Biosphere Reserve

The Volga-Akhtuba represents a mosaic structure of different landscapes, with high-yielding floodplain meadows, spawning grounds, oak groves and internationally important wetlands.

Volga-Akhtuba Floodplain Biosphere Reserve includes the upstream part of the Volga-Akhtuba floodplain (north of the floodplain‘s Kammennoyarsk contraction) within the Volgograd Oblast and, partly, the first above-floodplain terrace of the Akhtuba river.
