The Branch of the WWF in the Russian Caucasus Ecoregion handed over forest monitoring equipment to the activists of the Autonomous Non-Commercial Organization “Green shield of the Caucasus”.

The area of the Russian Caucasus Ecoregion is more than 276,000 sq km. Therefore, non-commercial environmental organizations help WWF work on such a vast territory. Activists identify, record and prevent violations in different regions. One of these organizations is the NGO "Green shield of the Caucasus". Only in 2019, the Autonomous Non-Commercial Organization employees surveyed the forest territories of North Ossetia, Ingushetia and Karachay-Cherkessia. Thanks to their work, many valuable forest areas of the North Caucasus have been preserved.

"The actions of activists and volunteers working with WWF are primarily aimed at preserving our nature, protecting forests, and complying with established legislation. I am glad that our region has such responsible organizations as the "Green shield of the Caucasus". I am sure that our cooperation will be long-term and fruitful," says Elena Cherkasova, Forest Officer of WWF-Russia's Branch in the Russian Caucasus Ecoregion.
