The opening ceremony of the 6th Russia's Primeval Nature festival took place on 18 January at the Central House of Artists in Moscow. The Far Eastern Leopards autonomous non-profit organisation has been the festival’s partner for many years, and this year is no exception. The organisation has two displays dedicated to Far Eastern leopards at the festival.
Visitors can go to a special zone to take a selfie with sculptures of the rare felines and the Far Eastern landscape. Information stands on preserving the spotted cats in the protected areas managed by Vorontsov Land of the Leopard are installed near the entrance to the Central House of Artists.
In addition, a roundtable meeting, Russia and China: Preserving Nature Together, was held as part of the event, attended by experts from both countries. Merited Ecologist of Russia Vsevolod Stepanitsky presented a report on the prospects of Russian-Chinese cross-border cooperation in biodiversity conservation.
On 14 February, Far Eastern Leopards together with interested organisations will hold a roundtable discussion on supporting and developing the young naturalists movement in Russia. The festival will be open until 17 February.
