Scientists will find out the size of the ivory gull population in the Russian Arctic
Scientists will determine the size of the ivory gull population in the Russian part of the Arctic during a helicopter expedition, which began on Monday from Khatanga in the Taimyr Dolgan-Nenets district of the Krasnoyarsk Territory.
The ivory gull is considered to be the same symbol of the Arctic as the polar bear. It never leaves high latitudes, sticking to the edge of drifting ice, where it produces food. The last time in Russia the counting of ivory gulls was carried out in 2006.
