The Friends of the Baltic Seal Foundation on its page on the Vkontakte social network announced the results of air surveys of the number of gray seals in the Russian part of the Gulf of Finland, which took place at the end of spring. Experts have recorded about 1,651 animals.
The report notes that the number of these animals has hardly changed in several years. Counting seals from the aircraft was not easy, as it was necessary to double-check each individual in the picture several times. The data analysis took several months in total.
In the near future, the foundation's specialists will start processing data on the Ladoga seal.
The Days of the East in Yamal will be held in Salekhard from March 2 to March 3. At VOSTOKFEST, about 30 representatives of the cultural centers of China, India and Korea will introduce the residents of the region to the unique original culture of their countries
