Chukotka symbol chosen for “Alley of Russia” in Sevastopol

In the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, the Internet voting has ended, which took place as part of the All-Russian action "Alley of Russia", in which all constituent entities of the Russian Federation take part. The goal of the project is to create a park zone in Sevastopol, including one plant from each region of the country. According to Olga Safonova, Chairperson of the Committee for Nature Management and Environmental Protection of the Department of Agricultural Policy and Environmental Management of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, the golden rhododendron became the leader of voting in the region. He received 550 votes, which is 39% of the total number of respondents.

The three leaders also included common cloudberry and dwarf cedar, for which 312 and 279 people voted, respectively. Also, residents cast 130 votes for a dwarf birch and 116 for a Chukchi bell. In general, more than 1 people took part in the Internet survey, - Olga Safonova said and noted that today the All-Russian Organizing Committee of the action continues to collect data from all regions of Russia.

Currently, the regional organizing committee of the action is considering the issues of safe delivery of golden rhododendron to Sevastopol. It is expected that the solemn landing of the "green symbols" representing 85 regions of the country will take place on September 21. Until the grand opening of the Alley of Russia, which is scheduled for May 9, 2015, the plants will take root in a new place and grow stronger.

We add that the action is carried out by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation together with the Priroda Environmental Protection Fund with the full support of the executive authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, nationally oriented businesses and public associations.
