Natural Treasures of Chekhovs Peak

25.04.2019

The Natural History of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands lecture series was held at the Sakhalin Regional Museum on April 24.

Viktor Vitalyevich Sheiko, Candidate of Biological Sciences, Senior Researcher at the Sakhalin Branch of the Botanical Garden-Institute of the Far Eastern Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences, delivered a lecture on Natural Treasures of Chekhov Peak for museum visitors.

From the top of Chekhovs Peak you can see beautiful and breathtaking landscapes which every year attract many travelers and tourists. The natural monument Chekhovs Mountain Highlands is a place of wildlife concentration of rare species of plants and animals. Some are endemic to the Sakhalin region, so their protection is a priority.

Unfortunately, human activities and natural hazards have an adverse effect on natural conditions in this area. For example, in some places where mudflows were flowing down after Typhoon Phyllis (1981), the lichen cover has not yet been restored.
Today, when there is a risk of losing a unique natural monument, it is necessary to change the current situation as soon as possible.
