The Kamchatka Peninsula (Russian: полуо́стров Камча́тка, Poluostrov Kamchatka) is a 1,250-kilometre-long (780 mi) peninsula in the Russian Far East, with an area of about 270,000 km2 (100,000 sq mi).[1] It lies between the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Sea of Okhotsk to the west.[2] Immediately offshore along the Pacific coast of the peninsula runs the 10,500-metre (34,400-ft) deep Kuril–Kamchatka Trench. The Kamchatka Peninsula, the Commander Islands, and Karaginsky Island constitute the Kamchatka Krai of the Russian Federation. The vast majority of the 322,079 inhabitants are ethnic Russians, but there are also about 13,000 Koryaks (2014).[3] More than half of the population lives in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky (179,526 people in 2010) and nearby Yelizovo (38,980). The Kamchatka peninsula contains the volcanoes of Kamchatka, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kamchatka receives up to 2,700 mm (110 in) of precipitation per year. The summers are moderately cool, and the winters tend to be rather stormy though rarely producing lightning. The animal world of Kamchatka is diverse with such important species as Brown Bear, which is common to see as you travel, Red Fox, Arctic Fox, Hare, Sable, Mink, Wolf, Lynx, Elk, Reindeer, Snow Sheep, Otter, and others. Among the sea mammals are Seal, Fur Seal, Sea-lion, and Sea Otter. There are frequent sightings of dolphins, and occasionally, whales. The most important bird species are the magnificent Steller's Sea Eagle, Golden Eagle and Peregrine, Rock and Willow Ptarmigan, Black-billed capercailye, Long-tailed Hawk, and Owl. Some birds, for instance Partridges, Capercailye and Swans, - stay on the peninsula throughout the year, while others - in particular Geese and Ducks, - come to this remote place every spring for nesting. The coastal cliffs and rocky islands are inhabited by Sea Gulls, Cormorants, Puffins, and others. More than thirty species of fish can be found in Kamchatka rivers, lakes, and seas, surrounding the peninsula. Among them are Salmon, Herring, Flounder, Halibut, Cod, Sea Perch, Crucial and others. It is of special interest that some species of wild animals and birds widely spread in similar natural zones on the mainland, are not found in every place of Kamchatka due to its harsh climate with long snowy winters. In particular, Kamchatka has no snakes or frogs. Neither do we have Starlings, Storks, Herons, or Swallows. It was only a few years ago that Sparrows appeared in Kamchatka and succeeded in settling here.
