On February 2nd the world celebrates one of the most important environmental holidays—the World Wetlands Day. It marks the date of signing of the Convention on Wetlands, called the Ramsar Convention, in 1971, in the city of Ramsar (Iran).

Wetlands play a significant role in Khakassky Reserve’s life. The reserve’s steppe areas include parts of water areas and shores of lakes Bele, Shira and Itkul, part of the Krasnoyarsk Reservoir’s shore, small lakes of various depth and mineralization level, and large bog complexes.

Every year specialists from the reserve’s Environmental Education Department plan activities dedicated to conservation of wetlands as places of habitat for numerous birds and other animals.

This year, the World Wetlands Day was celebrated together with children from the Abakan Boarding School for Children with Visual Impairments. The reserve’s specialists told about wetlands in Russia and, particularly, in the Republic of Khakassia. Then, to learn more about types of wetlands and processes that occur there, the children played a game: they were offered to make gifts for wetland inhabitants from any material they like. In a short time, children created a variety of presents: from three-dimensional pictures to envelopes with surprises.

“Such kind of activities always inspire both students and their teachers. After meeting with Khakassky Reserve, children become more curious, they start asking questions about environment. This is why many teachers began to use environmental breaks during lessons,” shared Alevtina Korotovskaya, a teacher from the Boarding School for Children with Visual Impairments.

In Shira District, children with physical disabilities were invited to celebrate the World Wetlands Day with the reserve. The event titled “Wetlands of Shira District” was held by Svetlana Volkova, a specialist of the reserve’s Environmental Education Department, and Irina Kardashova, a chairperson of the Society of the Disabled in Shira Village.

Children learned about the famous lakes of Khakassia—Itkul, Shira, Bele, and Ulug-Kol, and the ways the reserve protects their areas. Then, children were offered to play a game: they were asked to find connections between different animals pictured on soft blocks. At the end, everyone receive a present—a blue balloon representing a water drop.

There are two simple rules everyone needs to follow to preserve wetlands: keep shores and water clean, and not burn grass and other vegetation—and our wetlands will attract more birds and provide us with fresh water, oxygen and minerals.
