On September 20, 10 thousand pine and larch seedlings were planted in the Goloustnoye forestry of the Irkutsk region to restore the forest that burned down in 2003.
The plantings were organized as part of the PosadiLes forest restoration and conservation project with the support of the ECA movement and S7 Airlines.
Planting took place on an area of 2 hectares, more than 70 activists took part in them, including local residents, students and representatives of public organizations. The planting area was specially prepared by the staff of the local forestry, who will carry out the subsequent care of the seedlings.
““ The response of the country's residents to the initiative to restore the forests of Siberia has exceeded all expectations. After the start of the project "We are Siberia", the ECA movement received three times more volunteer applications than was required, - says Elena Gorokhova, director of the ECA movement. - This is only the first part of a million trees that we will plant together with S7. In two years, a new forest will appear on 22 hectares. We are grateful to Siberia Airlines, which offered to unite passengers and partners, as well as all participants for their contribution to the preservation of the region's forests. "
“It is very pleasant to observe that every year the number of volunteers is only growing, and reforestation activities are supported by socially responsible business. We thank everyone for their contribution to the preservation of the nature of our region for future generations, ” - says Svetlana Pervenetskaya, coordinator of the PosadiLes project in Irkutsk.
