The Baikal region covers the territory of the south of Eastern Siberia and the northern part of Mongolia. Among the main anthropogenic ones that play the leading role in the transformation of the region’s animal population structure are overgrazing, plowing of fields, fires, invasions of alien species of animals, overhunting and chemical pollution. For ichthyocenosis, the determining factors of transformation are: permanency of river flow, chemical pollution of water bodies and high exploitation intensity. The disturbance of zoocenoses is clearly correlated with the intensity of human economic activity. The basis of the evaluation map was the “Vegetation map” at scale of 1: 5 000 000. The map “Violation of the animal world” at scale of 1 : 5 000 000 includes 750 plots in the main layer belonging to 4 classes and 2 subclasses of faunal complexes disturbance, which completely shows the current state of vertebrate animal communities and the degree of their degradation. The thematic layer of the fauna complex disturbance was created on the basic cartographic data and the thematic layer of vegetation and satellite images for 1998–2017, as well as statistical data on fires, deforestation, industrial sites and mining sites. The legend of the map reflects four degrees of aboriginal faunal complexes disturbance and three degrees of that of ichthyocenosis. Basing upon the information collected and the map obtained, recommendations can be developed for the protection and saneattitude to wildlife in the Baikal Basin.
