4L3A9231.JPGOn 31 January 2023, Stavropol Krai officially summarized the results of the traditional CPC environmental and education project “Protect Nature of Our Native Land” and the winners of creative contests were also awarded.

This year, the environmental and education project was conducted together with the Directorate of Specially Protected Natural Territories in Stavropol Krai and was aimed at counteracting poaching. Lessons on this topic were arranged for a total of 2,400 students at 22 educational institutions in Stavropol Krai. They were attended by children from orphanages, boarding schools, schools of culture and art, students of secondary schools, students of vocational and higher educational institutions from Trunovsky, Apanasenkovsky, Novoalexandrovsky, Ipatovsky, Izobilnensky, Turkmensky Districts of Stavropol Krai and Stavropol city.

Then they had the opportunity to test their strength in creative competitions in various genres on topics: "Poachers are the enemy of nature", "Photo hunting - fascinating communication with nature", "How I save nature", "Into the world of protected nature - with a good heart".

On 31 of January, prizes and gifts were awarded to the winners of creative competitions in the building of the Stavropol State Agrarian University.

Immediately afterwards, the project participants arrived at the Directorate of Specially Protected Natural Territories of Stavropol Krai, where a CPC-funded education and training classroom was opened. It is designed to teach classes to schoolchildren and to test a unique pedagogical model of environmental education for children and adults.4L3A9275.JPG

It is also worth noting that as part of the Protect Nature of Our Native Land Project, CPC has improved the equipment of inspectors of specially protected natural territories with modern technical means. Specifically, the Consortium’s funds were used to purchase a photo trap, thermal imaging camera, chest video recorder, telescopic lens for photo and video recording. This equipment helps the representatives of nature protection agencies day and night, from a great distance and in all weathers to record the facts of poaching and create evidence base of violations for the judicial authorities.  Thus, it enhances the efficiency of inspectors' work and, as a result, the protection of all inhabitants of nature reserves.
