Volunteers will protect the Avacha River from poachers
The Avacha River runs through the most populated area of the region. For a long time, salmon populations of the Avacha River are influence by heavy pressing caused by illegal fishermen. The presence of indigenous people’s fishing grounds and anglers worsens the situation. These groups of fishermen suffer directly from the poachers’ activity.
The volunteers’ camp will appear in Elizovo, near an outreach center “Land of fish and fish-eater”. A training center for volunteers will be located here as well.
Anyone can become a volunteer and participate in patrolling of the Avacha River this summer. Inspectors of the State Inspection of Small Vessels will cooperate with volunteers and participate in patrolling either. Patrolling operations will be aimed at searching and locating illegal activity on the river. All the cases spotted will be mapped and the information about them sent to the monitoring institutions. The volunteers’ camp will continue its work until September.
