From September 8 to 11, 2022, the Center for the Study and Rehabilitation of the Caspian Seal and the Central Asian Institute for Ecological Research (CAIER) conducted a scientific expedition to study the state and habitat of the Caspian seal population in the Kazakhstani part of the Caspian Sea. This is already the sixth expedition conducted by the scientists of the Center and the Institute.
Based on the results of the trip, samples of sea water, bottom sediments were taken, and meteorological parameters were measured. All samples were transferred to the laboratory of the institute.
It should be recalled that the project for the conservation of the Caspian seal was launched by the Saby Foundation together with the Central Institute for Ecological Research in 2019. During this time, the Center for the Study and Rehabilitation of Seals was opened in Aktau, which today is an independent organization that has declared itself and has a serious reputation in the ecological community.
The Center does a lot of work on research, rearing and veterinary support of the population. In addition, it has its own fund that accepts donations from everyone who wants to contribute to the salvation of the Caspian endemic.
For our part, we are glad to be at the origins of such an important and necessary project and wish our colleagues great success in their work.
