On 16 October, the Untamed Nature of Russia open-air exhibition will open in Zaryadye Park in Moscow. Muscovites and tourists will be able to see the untamed Russian nature and unique pictures featuring wild animals inhabiting the most far-away places.
“The opening of the exhibition is timed with the Golden Turtle International Wildlife Festival, which has been organised for 10 years now. We are glad that this year the environmental and educational project will be implemented in Zaryadye as well. The photographs presented in our park feature animals inhabiting Russian protected areas: a brown bear, a smiling seal and a snow-covered fox,” said Director of Zaryadye Pavel Trekhleb.
The exhibition includes 30 pictures taken by nature photographers during their expeditions to Russian nature reserves and national parks. There are photos from the Kronotsky Biosphere Reserve in Kamchatka – the oldest in Russia, as well as from the Komandorsky Nature Reserve, Russia’s largest marine nature reserve, situated on the Commander Islands in the Bering Sea and the Pacific Ocean.
The Untamed Nature of Russia exhibition will last until 31 October. It is open for visits during the park’s operating hours: 2 pm–10 pm on Monday and 10 am–10 pm on the other days. Admission is free.
Pavel Trekhleb added that the exhibition stands will be installed not in one place but on the entire territory of the park so there would be no queues. They will be illuminated at night.
This year, the Golden Turtle International Wildlife Festival will take place from 14 October to 5 November at the Expocentre on Krasnaya Presnya Street. The main goal of the festival is to attract public attention to environmental issues.
The Russian Arctic exhibition opened in the Media Centre in Zaryadye Park on 29 September. Visitors can see photographs, objects and equipment from the first Arctic expeditions as well as drawings by famous explorers. On 15 October, a children’s media studio will also open in Zaryadye for young Muscovites to learn how to shoot films.
