Now, considering anthropogenous influence on flood lands only protected natural areas can serve place for guaranteed preservation of Russian desman Desmana moschata. In 2006 interrogation of all reserves and the national parks located in a historical area of a species has been spent for finding-out of its placing. 37 protected natural areas have appeared potentially suitable for desman habitat (there are inundated grounds). The species is registered in 15 (40.5 %), but in majority of cases inspections are resulted 10-20 summer prescription. In 84 % protected natural areas there are no quantitative characteristics of species, and 60 % protected natural areas have no information on desman. Now authentic data on species presence are available all in 6 protected natural areas: reserves Bryansk wood, Kerzhensky, Oka and Hopyorsky, and national parks the Oryol woodlands and Ugra. In 3 from them a desman was reacclimatized within last 5-10 years.
