Neva Crawfish Against Garbage: Cleaning on the Upper Suzdal Lake

June 3, 2017, on the International Day for the Purification of Reservoirs, our team has joined the cleaning on the bank of the Upper Suzdal Lake, and representatives of the diving clubs have put the bottom in order. The participants of our action and all interested became heroes of the mini-film, which we offer to your attention.

The Upper Suzdal Lake is a very popular holiday destination among the inhabitants of the city. Unfortunately, not everyone convey the remaining after the picnic trash to the ballot box. This is a common problem for all our reservoirs. Of course, the lake needed help before the start of the season. For example, cans and bottles lay on the bottom since last summer. We decided to put order there together with the St. Petersburg branch of the Russian Geographical Society and representatives of diving clubs - our cooperation started back in 2010, when cleaning was carried out at the mouth of the Neva River on the shore of the Gulf of Finland.

Cleaning the Upper Suzdal Lake was organized with the support of the Committee for Press and Media Relations, the Committee for Nature Management, the Administration of Vyborg District and the State Unitary Enterprise "Vodokanal of St. Petersburg". A pile of garbage bags, an automobile tire - such a "catch" was waiting for divers on this not a very nice day. But the weather was unable to prevent all of us!

On the beach, adults and children were able to get to know the main character of our site - Nevsky Crayfish, and take a picture with him. to take part in the filming of our video, it was necessary to answer one question: "What is water?" And those who posted photos in social networks with hashtags #невскийрак and #давода, became participants in the prize drawing - a ticket to the St. Petersburg aquarium. Marina Savosteeva got it. Everybody also received souvenirs from Vodokanal of St. Petersburg.
