WWF-Russia have supported "The Sea of Life" Festival
23 september 2019
This year, the fourth annual festival devoted to the problems of conservation of marine species took place in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
"The Sea of Life" Festival is an annual event devoted to the issues of restoration, conservation and sustainable use of marine resources. The event attracts the attention of the wider public to environmental concerns via scientific documentaries, lectures, workshops, photo exhibitions, and a wide variety of entertaining activities mostly aimed to reach the younger generation.
"The festival has become an important local event which plays a big role in the dissemination of conservation ideas and information on environmental issues. There two major concerns which threaten the health of the seas and oceans globally. They are global climate change and marine plastic pollution. We can solve these problems only addressing them together, joining our efforts on the way to clearer and healthier marine ecosystems. Environmental organizations should, first of all, be contacting the youth as the main driver of vital changes," said Sergey Rafanov, the director of WWF-Russia's Kamchatka/Bering Sea Ecoregional Office.
WWF-Russia participates in the festival as a partner. "The Sea of Life" first took place in Kamchatka in 2016. This year, according to the information provided by the organizers, more than a thousand people visited the event.
