WWF HANDED OVER EQUIPMENT TO KUBAN NGO
The monitoring and detection of illegal logging is one of the areas of WWF-Russia's work in the Caucasus. The Fund is assisted in surveys by regional non-profit organizations. To increase the efficiency, WWF-Russia provides these organizations with the necessary equipment. So, within the framework of the "People for Nature" project, the Autonomous Non-Commercial Organization "Western Caucasus" and the Autonomous Non-Commercial Organization for Further Professional Education "Academy of Social Sciences" received a tablet and GPS navigators for working at logging sites."These NGOs work not only in Krasnodar region, but also make field trips to other regions of the Caucasus, such as North Ossetia, Kabardino-Balkaria and Dagestan. The equipment will allow them to work more accurately and quickly, including during joint raids with supervisory state bodies and departments," says Elena Cherkasova, Senior Forest Officer of Russian Caucasus Ecoregional Office WWF-Russia.
