Like in the previous years, events under the project “Let’s Save Our Country’s Environment” were held in all 13 districts of the Republic and in its capital. They included open environmental classes as well as a creative competition among pupils to create the best materials in the area of Kalmykia flora and fauna protection. A video competition was arranged for ecology teachers, which was dedicated to preservation of rare animal species. A children’s recreation camp session “Let’s Save Unique Environment” was held in the summer. Voluntary Saturday work events were held in order to plant trees on the territory of park areas and social facilities.
As part of the project, CPC continued its collaboration launched in 2016 with the unique Black Lands Natural Park to improve the habitat of saiga antelopes. As a reminder, since the start of the collaboration the saiga antelope numbers in the natural park have grown from 4000 individuals in 2015 to 7000 individuals in 2018. This year Consortium purchased Uaz-Patriot off-road motor vehicle for the needs of the natural park.
CPC’s environmental and educational project “Let us save our country's environment” is implemented by the company in the regions through which CPC pipeline passes. During this time the program focused on protecting rare types of sturgeon in Astrakhan oblast, saiga, demoiselle crane and rare types of tulips in Kalmykia, red deer and sika deer populations in Stavropol krai. CPC allocates around 10 million rubles annually for environmental programs.
