Eco-educational festival will take place in Kamchatka
The travelling festival “Save Kamchatka nature” will visit five districts of the peninsula in the next two months. Volunteers and staff members of “Kamchatka Volcanoes” Natural park and Kronotsky preserve will conduct more than 200 lessons in primary and secondary school. They will tell about rare species, ways of conservation, human impact.
“Sometimes, during these meetings we learn about awful incidents,” says Elena Krasilnikova, the head of uncommercial partnership “Informational tourist center of Elizovsky municipal district”, who has been organizing this kind of festival for five years by now.
“Once a boy told us how he and his father had been casing a bear on a tractor. And it had seemed normal to him at that time. So, you see, we want teach children something new about nature, teach them how to preserve it, so coming back home, those kids would tell their parents the same things and teach their own parents too.”
