Before that (since 1888), its territory was called “Kuban hunting” and was exploited as a place of aristocratic leisure of the Great Russian princes of the Romanovs. For this purpose, a special agreement was concluded with the Rada (the “parliament” of the Cossacks of the Kuban region).

The Russian government tried to limit the shooting of local animals  in 1913 and 1916. However, only the Bolsheviks managed to turn these places into a protected territory from 1919 to 1924.
