The Kedrovaya River in the oldest nature reserve in the Far East is recognized as the purest

The press service of the Land of the Leopard National Park reported the results of “people’s” monitoring of freshwater objects. Researchers have discovered at the bottom of the Kedrovaya River in the Kedrovaya Pad Nature Reserve many aquatic animals that live only in perfectly clean water bodies.

Activities to assess water quality were carried out under the guidance of experienced hydrobiologists. The collection was carried out by schoolchildren and students, so the process was both scientific and educational in nature.

Young monitoring participants learned how to correctly collect biological material, measure river flow speed, and examined selected samples under a microscope. Among the animals found were many stoneflies and mayflies. Representatives of these families avoid bodies of water even with slight pollution and help in determining the purity of water.

The results of the field research in Kedrovaya Pad will form the basis for the final report on monitoring freshwater sources and will be published on the websites of the project organizers. The collected information will help predict and block possible contamination.

The Kedrovaya Pad Nature Reserve is the oldest in the Far East.
