Mission Statement

The development of eco-tourism and the increase of ecological culture of society for the harmonious mutual existence of humans and nature.

Description

Baikal is the oldest, deepest lake in the world with rich biodiversity, stunning views.

Team up with Great Baikal Trail to work at our eco-projects on the shores of Lake Baikal and in the Taiga Forest!

As a volunteer, you can join us in building nature trails, promoting ecotourism and education.

On Baikal, eco-volunteering is especially popular. It is not surprising that conscientious people understand that Baikal is an asset of the whole world, and that the protection and preservation of it is everyone's concern.

A well-built trail is the infrastructure of eco-tourism. The trail has a large role in nature preservation:

  • It guides visitors on developed routes;
  • Allows for the conservation of the ecosystem;
  • Lowers the danger of forest fires (the trail is a mineral strip, which inhibits the progression of fire, as there is no brush to burn. It also allows fire fighters uninhibited access to the heart of a blaze);
  • Allows for trash to be localized within the bounds of the developed camps and makes it possible to transport for disposal.

Our goals

- Increase the ecological culture of the population and tourists

- Creation of infrastructure for eco-tourism

- Training specialists
