On 25 July – 4 August 2015 a group of people from the international network "Exploring Russia's Environmental History and Natural Resources" undertook a field trip to Lake Baikal.

The group met in Ulan-Ude and visited various places on and around the lake including the Barguzin Nature Reserve (Russia’s first Zapovednik), the Ushkanyi Islands (home to the nerpa – the endemic  Baikal ringed seals Pusa sibirica), Olkhon island (with its important Buriat sites), finishing up in Irkutsk. Several workshops were held and local experts were involved.

Visit the Baikal page of the network's website for a full itinerary, reflective essays from participants, photos and more.

Baikal Fires update - new bank account
Category: General
Tags: Appeal Fire Baikal

Nikolay Tsyrempilov has been in touch with a new bank account for donations for their urgent work to fight the fires around Lake Baikal. He reports that progress has been made, but there is still work to be done. See Nikolay’s email below:

10 September 2015

Please excuse us for the problematic bank account. In the attachment you can find the new one. We still desperately need your help. Most of the fires are stopped but still there are some areas where firefighters and volunteers work. We need also money to equip the volunteers station because we should be ready for such kind of fires again in the future.


Thank you for your efforts,

Nikolay Tsyrempilov
