On December 16 a photo exhibition called "Nature and Animals of Russia" opens at the State Darwin Museum. Unique pictures of the winners and participants of the photo contest of the same name will help visitors to make a unique journey into Russia, which amazes with the richness of the wild nature and the diversity of its inhabitants.
Visitors will see exciting moments from the life of wild animals living in the most remote corners of our country: from the east - Kamchatka and Primorsky Krai - to the Franz Josef Land, the Caucasus and the westernmost point of Russia. The guests of the museum will see how the Amur tiger tracks down the wapiti in the Sikhote-Alin reserve in Primorsky Krai, killer whales and humpback whales patrol the waters near the Commander Islands, brown bears hunt salmon on the shores of Sakhalin Island. Part of the exposition will be dedicated to the largest predator in the world - the Amur tiger.
The All-Russian Photo Contest "Nature and Animals of Russia", organized by the Amur Tiger Center with the support of the Russian Geographical Society, was held this year for the first time. In two months the organizers received more than 2,500 unusual photographs. This photo contest is designed to popularize the careful treatment of nature and conservation of rare species of animals, including the Amur tiger listed in the Red Book.
