The Amur valley and its flood lands are the nesting area for 95 percent of the world population of Oriental White stork, 65% of red-crowned cranes and 50% of White-naped Cranes.
To the north the Amur's principal tributaries are the Zoya, the Bureya, and the Amgun rivers, to the south its main tributaries are the Sungari and the Ussuri, which constitutes another portion of the border between Russia and China.
For years the AmurRiver was the main route of communications connecting the forest of the Siberian interior, the Pacific coastland and even the remote shores of the Arctic Ocean.
