Our safari-expedition to Africa “Stars of Namibia” was finished.

Our safari-expedition to Africa “Stars of Namibia” was finished successfully. On the expedition car “Toyota Hilux” the participants of the expedition travelled approximately 4600 km about the country. Every day of the expedition was like a diamond…and each day- of a different colour! We were greeted by the cool rolling ocean with seals and plenty of birds on the coast, red dunes of the Namib desert; sunburnt Damaraland mountains, the Etosha pan with many diverse African animals and birds, fantastically beautiful aloe forest…

Despite the informative nature of the expedition we managed to take a number of interesting photos that were posted on specialized sites on monitoring of animals, birds and plants of the world.

Expedition along Kamchatka and Chukotka coasts “The Uykoal Land” has been successfully completed.

Фейсбук6The large scale and long-term research sea expedition along Kamchatka and Chukotka coasts “The Uykoal Land” has been successfully completed! The participants of the expedition sailed about 2500 nautical miles on the severe Bering Sea and approximately 700 km down the Kamchatka River. The expedition program has been totally fulfilled. We gathered an extensive data on distribution and numerosity of marine mammals, some birds species; on rare plants of the region. The Research Centre has supplied its scientific collections with new interesting exhibits. The extreme part of the expedition was especially remarkable for unplanned visits of brown bears during stops.

Official thanks from FSBI “Taimyr Reserves”

Благодарность ФивалGOOD news for all participants of our Arctic expeditions in 2014-2017. Joint management of “Taimyr Reserves” sent us official thanks for…”quality and high efficiency in expedition work associated with exploration of biological diversity of Taimyr and coastal ecosystems of the Kara Sea and the Laptev Sea…” Thanks to all participants of our Arctic expeditions for your help in implementation of those hardest but at the same time most interesting travels!

Ecological atlas of the Laptev Sea

Атлас 1In 2017 LLC “Arctic Scientific Centre” issued a unique ecological atlas “The Laptev Sea” that contained more than sixty our expedition photos (made by the “Finval” RC team). By the way, the photo on the cover page of the atlas – the picturesque Tsvetkov Cape of the Taymyr Peninsula – is also made by our team. It is no wonder that the authors of the atlas addressed us. Let us recall that the total length of our routes in the Laptev Sea for the 6 seasons of arctic expeditions constituted approximately 5000 km, and the assistant routes (to travel to the sea) constituted about 12000 km (the Lena River, The Yana River, the Khatanga River)! During the expeditions in the Laptev Sea we visited 22 big arctic islands and many small islands…As a result we explored more than 80% of the Laptev Sea coast and gathered broad scientific data (the volume of the collected data is probably the largest one on the Laptev Sea coast in the country at present).
