In March, the Sakhalin Oblast biodiversity conservation strategy will be ready for 2015.

Participants of the two-day workshop "Regional Aspects of Biodiversity Conservation in the Implementation of Energy Projects" discussed the Concept of the Sakhalin Oblast Biodiversity Conservation Strategy. Taking into account their recommendations, the document will be finalized and submitted to the regional government for consideration at the environmental council. It is planned that the strategy will be ready for review in March 2015.

Preserving everything: from earthworms to rare species in the Red Data Book - this is the goal of the multifaceted document. It is about promoting respect for nature, and about the creation of specially protected natural areas, and about the possible appearance in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk of an entire museum of nature instead of the current thematic section in the local history museum. A lot of proposals, voiced by the participants of the seminar, have accumulated, which is understandable: there has never been a single, comprehensive action plan for nature conservation in the region.

- This work is being done now, because there is a unique experience of interaction between oil companies, scientific organizations and government structures. That is why Sakhalin Region was chosen as one of the demonstration sites within the framework of the All-Russian biodiversity conservation project when implementing energy projects, ”explained Pavel Ktitorov, head of the laboratory of island ecological problems at the Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics of the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

According to IA Sakh.com, the head of the environmental protection department of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the Sakhalin Region, Elena Nevenchina, explained that the adoption of such strategies is not regulated by federal regulatory documents, this initiative belongs exclusively to the regions. The concept developed on Sakhalin will streamline environmental protection measures for several years to come.
