“The Sources of the Amur River” – Russian-Mongolian Rally in the Year of Salmon
Comments Viktor Yashnov, director of the Sokhondinsky Nature Reserve:
This year the rally was organized under the Year of Salmon announced by WWF in 2019. Russian and Mongolian schoolchildren know a lot about salmon species living in their rivers: taimen, lenok, grayling. To attend this event for schoolchildren from both countries is a high reward for their environmental work during the year.
The program of the rally included a lot of activities such as workshops on making fish figures from cold porcelain, watching the documentary "The Sources of the Amur River", interactive games on environmental topics, for guests from Mongolia – the introduction to the Russian culture.
