On July 15 Narzan Gallery in Kislovodsk housed a photo-show with pictures of the Commander Islands protected animals. The presentation took place in the visitor center of Kislovodsk National Park. 50 children from Smena City Recreation Center took part in the event.
The event was organized in the framework of Protected Friendship project and by invitation of Kislovodsk National Park. The photo show contains pictures of wild animals together with their description from the Commander Islands ABC-book. The book shares the first steps of getting acquainted with nature of the islands.
“The conference hall for 50 people was full,” said Svetlana Glinkina, who represented the Commander Islands Nature and Biosphere Reserve on the event. “The young visitors attended the presentation about the Commander Islands and marine mammals. Watched a documentary about grey whales and sand cartoons about northern right whales, sea otters and tufted puffins made by Olga Suchkova”.
