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, 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 museum of local lore. 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 now being carried out because there is a unique experience of interaction between oil companies, scientific organizations and government agencies. That is why the Sakhalin Region was chosen as one of the demonstration sites within the framework of the All-Russian project for the conservation of biodiversity in the implementation of energy projects, - explained Pavel Ktitorov, head of the laboratory of island environmental problems of the Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics, Far East Branch, 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 regulations, this initiative belongs exclusively to the regions. The concept, developed in Sakhalin, will streamline environmental activities for several years to come.
