“We are grateful to the organizers of the seminar for giving us this unique opportunity not only to benefit from
sharing our knowledge in ecotourism development sphere with others, but also to learn from the experience of our colleagues from specially protected nature territories in the Russian Far East and WWF Russia’s Amur Branch, discuss urgent ecotourism development issues and exchange guidance materials”, says Svetlana Shchigreva.
