Living Seas of the Russian Arctic photo exhibition opens in Moscow

A walrus kindergarten, polar bears among the Arctic ice and bowhead whales will appear on Tverskoi Boulevard in Moscow thanks to the Living Seas of the Russian Arctic photo exhibition. On September 14 – October 31, people living in and those visiting the capital will be able to see 64 unique photographs of the inhabitants of the Far North by the best world-famous photographers.

The images show rare flora and fauna of such unique areas as the Gydan Natural Reserve, the Russian Arctic National Park, the Laptev Sea Sanctuary and Wrangel Island, Nenets and Medvezhy Islands natural reserves. Visitors will be able to see such amazing and remote regions of the Russian Arctic as the Severnaya Zemlya and Franz Josef Land archipelagos and Chukotka and Taimyr coasts.

In accord with the organizers’ idea, the photo exhibition will help draw attention to specially protected natural marine areas and show how beautiful and diverse the Arctic seas are and how important it is to take care of their development.

The exhibition is presented by the Golden Turtle international wildlife festival and the World Wide Fund for Nature and supported by the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and Moscow’s Department for Environmental Management and Protection.
