    Вы можете связаться напрямую с ребятами, работающими в Чупе. Координатор птичьего проекта Julia Suprunenko at Кроме птичьего, у них есть еще несколько интересных программ. Там же в Чупе есть яхт-клуб, я писала о нем где-то на сайте. – You can contact the Chupa guys direct. Julia Suprunenko ( coordinates that project.

    Биологическая станция Картеш – научное учреждение Зоологического института Академии наук. Просто побыть там никак невозможно. Строго ограниченное место, помещения, рассчитана только на прием определенного числа научных сотрудников и студентов для биологических исследований. Впрочем, сейчас станция Картеш активно ищет повара на летний сезон:) Информация тут – The Kartesh station belongs to the Zoology Institute of the Academy of Sciences. It is not possible to “just visit”. They have just enough space for their researchers and students. But at the moment the station is actively looking for a cook for the summer season 🙂 All the info is at

    Еще один момент. Некоторые районы Карелии требуют обязательной регистрации приезжих иностранцев. Это лучше проверить, там реально следят за этим. – And another point. In some areas of Karelia foreigners must be registered. Check where it applies. Usually this requirement can be ignored but in some places in Karelia the rule is enforced.

  3. HI, I will be visiting the Karelia and Kola Peninsula region at the end of July and would be happy to give you any of my sightings which might be of use in your Atlas. I am wondering is there any English/Latin list of birds to be seen in the area so I can get an idea of what to look out for? Best of luck with the project!
