Utashud Island is a small rocky island located in Vestnik Bay, just 4 km off the southern tip of the Kamchatka Peninsula, in the NW Pacific Ocean. It is part of the Kuril Islands chain in the Russian Far East, located directly to the north of Japan and east of Sakhalin. There is little vegetation on the island, and tall, sharp cliffs are its only ornament. This wild place is the domain of marine birds and mammals, and is included in the Yuzhno-Kamchatskiy Nature Park. It is home to many rare and endangered species including the Steller's Sea-eagle, one of the largest eagles.

The island is deprived of forest or brush cover, but its flat slopes are covered in soil. Actually, this is not one but three small related islands, two of which are linked and the third of which can be reached on foot during low tide. Cuspidate ice ramparts (153 and 183 m) adorn the coast. The landscape is adorned with the remains of a half-sunken ship. The island is edged by rocks, which are often covered in kelp. The surrounding kelp beds are home to an abundant variety of marine life, including northern fur seals and otters.

One of the richest islands on the southeastern side of Kamchatka, Utashud is notable for its population of sea otters (up to 300 individuals), as well as its Steinneger’s harbor seal and spotted sealrookeries. From spring until late December, a group of grey whales feeds here. Utashud is inhabited by 10 species of marine birds with a total abundance over 22,000 pairs, including one of the largest colonies of slaty-backed gulls (4,000 pairs) and tufted puffins (10,000 pairs). The whole region around Kamchatka boasts a diverse and abundant wildlife, and is best known for the abundance and size of its brown bears.
