First Encyclopedic Photo Album About Saigas Published in Kazakhstan With CPC-K Support

Photoalboom.jpgOn 18 May 2023, an official presentation of AQBÓKEN Saiga Tatarica photo album took place in the Nur Alem Museum of Energy of the Future in Astana. Deputies of the Republic of Kazakhstan Parliament, representatives of Ministries, CEOs of National Companies, environmental specialists and scientists participated in the event.

Saiga is one of the ancient animals that have inhabited the Eurasian steppes since the Pleistocene epoch. According to the expert opinion, no scientific and educational literature on saigas has been published in Kazakhstan since 1982, though this topic has been and continues to be of particular importance given the threat of extinction of these red-listed animals. The AQBÓKEN Saiga Tatarica photo album has been issued to fill this gap. The publication of 1,000 copies in Kazakh, Russian and English in high quality printing has been published with the support of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium.

The photo album includes over 100 pictures of famous photographers from all over the world taken in different seasons of the year. The illustrations are accompanied by scientific information about the origin of saigas, the geography of their distribution, and their modern habitat.  Scientists T. Dietrich (NABU) and Yu. Grachev (MNVO RK) were reviewers of the publication.

“As part of its charity activity, CPC supports environmental programs in Kazakhstan and Russia, said Kairgeldy Kabyldin, CPC-K Deputy General Director, RoK Government Relations, at the photo album presentation. - Since 2016, with the assistance of our Company, work has been carried out in Kazakhstan to save and increase the saiga population, in particular, the "Sacred Saiga" environmental project was implemented. This photo album is a natural continuation of the Consortium's work to protect saigas, promote their way of life, and raise environmental awareness among the younger generation”. 

The photo album is not for sale. The Caspian Pipeline Consortium donates this book to the libraries of educational institutions and environmental organizations in Atyrau Oblast, the region of its presence.
