About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Russian

From the introduction:

"Sakhalin is the largest Russian islands, separated from the Japanese island of Hokkaido by the La Perouse Strait and extending for almost 1000 km to the north along the eastern coast of Asia. [...] In recent years, as oil and gas projects are being actively developed in the Sakhalin region, the world's largest companies have come to the island. Today, it is especially important to avoid past mistakes and arrange production and transportation of hydrocarbons in line with the environmental requirements and best international practices. [...] Sakhalin Energy Investment Company, Ltd., the operator of the "Sakhalin-2" project, has already been working on Sakhalin Island for 20 years. [...] Biodiversity conservation is an important activity of environmental specialists of Sakhalin Energy. For several years the company has been implementing the Biodiversity Action Plan, which includes special programmes aimed at maintaining protected species of animals and plants and particularly sensitive ecosystems. [...] During the research, a lot of new interesting information about Sakhalin plants was collected, previously unknown places of growth of protected species were discovered and an orchid species new for Sakhalin was found. During the field work, a lot of pictures that reflect the beauty of some species and show the features of the Sakhalin flora were made. We hope that this album will delight all who love nature and want to preserve it."
