On February 20 Museum of the World Ocean, Kaliningrad will host the photo exhibition To the Protected Coasts of Kamchatka. Together with Kronotsky Nature Reserve, our colleagues from the Kamchatka Protected Areas Association, we have prepared 34 photos reflecting the beauty and richness of the nature of Kamchatka and the Commander Islands.
You will get acquainted with the northern landscapes and the inhabitants of the coast and water areas of specially protected nature areas: sea otters, sea lions, whales and other amazing creatures.
The opening will take place at 12:00 in the Depth hall of the Museum of the World Ocean main building. Senior students may join the excursion to the exhibition, and on February 21 at 11:00 we invite everyone to master classes on creating magnets and postcards with protected animals.
The exhibition runs until early April.
The Commander Islands Nature and Biosphere Reserve is Russia's largest marine nature reserve. It is located on the Commander Islands and the adjacent waters. Its area is more than 3 million hectares and is comparable with the territory of Belgium. In the protected waters rare seals, seabirds, and sea otters feel safe. The reserve is the only place in our country where whales are observed all year round. More than 20 species of cetaceans have been registered in the nature reserve.
