Taiga Fest spotlighted the Tiger and Honey
14 october 2019
The third in a row Taiga Festival was held with the support of WWF and the Primorsky Region Bee Keepers Union.
The final event took place in the local art park. A honey alley was organized at the Fest for the gusts to try different kinds of honey and herbal teas. When warmed by the tea and one could enjoy the AR photo exhibition spotlighting the Amur tiger. Each picture had a secret – they came to life turning into a video from the wild shot by camera traps. The display was a present of WWF to the Fest and A Tiger Day that was held one week earlier.
A concert, a contest to find the golden Korea pine cone, and other activities were warm welcomed by the people.
For WWF and the Union the Festival is yet another platform to raise public attention towards the values of non-timber forest products, linden as a main honey plant, and taiga apiculture. About 95% of honey plants of Primorsky Region grow in the forest so saving the taiga we foster the regeneration of a taiga bee keeping.
