Youth of Primorye participated in all-Russia Junior Water Contest

04 may 2016
On April 16-20 a final competition of the Contest took place in Moscow to choose the best project on water protection, restoration and sustainable use of water resources.

Two students, the winners of regional phase of the contest held in 2015, represented Primorsky Province with a project “Following Mr. Shibnev’s track: 20 years on”. Their poster presentation was highly praised by the strict jury and allowed Arina and Sergey to win the first prize under the nomination “The Water and the World”. 

The project was run in Pozharsky District in 2014-2015 with the support of WWF. Secondary schools environmental agencies assessed what changes took place in the Bikin River system over the last 20 years and compared the received data with the ones described by Boris Shibnev. The latter was the person who devoted his life to the Bikin River; it was him who raised the issue of establishing strictly protected area in the Bikin River basin.
