#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In the series, there are 12 lessons on ecology and the development of the natural potential of the region. Almost all of them are posted on the website of the Directorate for Protected Areas in a special section. Interactive lessons have been taking place from the beginning of the year. More than 1,800 residents of the Krasnoyarsk region have already taken part in them.
The topic of the 11th lesson was about rare and endangered species of animals in the region. Having studied the material of the November lesson, readers will find out, in particular, when the first list of animals included in the Red Book of the Krasnoyarsk region was approved, and which categories of rarity are assigned to certain species or populations, depending on their condition in the natural environment.
The lesson introduces various species of the Red Book, such as the red wolf, northern fin whale, large tube-nosed bat and even pink flamingo, which is difficult to imagine in the Krasnoyarsk region, according to the Ministry of Ecology and Rational Nature Management of the region.
The next lesson will be devoted to the Red Book of Plants and Mushrooms of the region, it will be posted on the website of the directorate in early December.
Earlier, we told about the unusual Red Book birds that live on Taimyr, and this summer, scientists found plants on the Putorana plateau that are not typical of the North.
