Polyus launched a website about biodiversity

Polyus has launched a website dedicated to biodiversity and the Company’s projects for supporting ecosystems in Siberia and the Far East of Russia. Information about the rare species of animals, birds and fish that the Company protects in cooperation with nature reserves, national parks and the Institute of Biological Problems of the North under the Russian Academy of Sciences, is presented in an easy-to-read form supplemented by infographics and interesting facts.

The website describes in detail the Company’s key program for supporting biodiversity — Protected Nature Reserve. Visitors will be able to discover:

  • Which rare plant and bird species can be found in a place where the annual temperature varies by 98 degrees?
  • How does an island of 2.5 square kilometers accommodate 147 species of birds?
  • Where can you find Jack London Lake in Russia?
  • In what way is a horned puffin similar to a penguin?
  • And more information about the nature of Krasnoyarsk Territory, Yakutia, Irkutsk and Magadan Regions.

Polyus’ Protected Nature Reserve covers all regions of the Company’s operations.

Wapiti, musk deer, Siberian grouse, lynx and the common sucker are just some of the unique species that the Company helps to protect.

We invite everyone to visit the website and watch a video about a Protected Nature Reserve project — bird monitoring on Talan Island.
