The “Lake Baikal” Foundation continues to cooperate with the GBT Association in 2019.
With the support of the Foundation, the project “With a backpack along the trail” will be held.
During the year 200 children and teenagers of the Baikal region will take part in it.
The main purposes of the program:
– increasing the ecological culture of children;
– drawing the attention of educational staff to the need for eco-lessons;
– addressing the problem of animal protection and plant conservation in a strategically important region of Russia where Lake Baikal is located, which is experiencing heavy human influence as a result of the development of mass and chaotic tourism, accompanied by trampling trails, illegal fishing and other negative consequences.
In the coming weeks, we will develop teaching materials, whereupon we will determine the schedule of visits, so follow the news.
