20 April 2018
In 2017 Lake Baikal Foundation launched a support program for young researchers «Baikal Initiative». Its aim lies in developing technological and applied scientific research for conservation and protection of the lake.
Three scientific projects won the contest. They were: study on actual state of semiaquatic birds in the Southern Baikal; expedition on 100-year old Doppelmayr’s trail aimed at monitoring biological diversity; actinobacteria evaluation for developing new bioactive compounds and medicines.
In advance of the projects’ implementation, the Foundation interviewed their leaders and inspirators to find out how their activities would preserve and protect the Baikal, what each team member’s personal motivation was and about future plans.
The Lake Baikal Foundation for Environmental Applications and Research pursues charitable and research objectives aimed at preserving the Lake Baikal natural territory and promoting its sustainable development. Join us!
