Now this island “Belyi” (“White”) has the status of a national park, however since the 1930s it was continuously cluttered with the stuff that was brought here from the “Big Earth”. As the island is far to the North, inside of the polar circle, everything gets imported here, including fuel in large metal barrels and things like that. There is lots of stuff to clear up, and here come the volunteers. Actually, the volunteering culture is something pretty new for the country, however here they are. See what it was like to clean a polar island of things that had been brought there for years. Nice polar summer landscapes, fogs, grass and +10 degrees centigrade.
Yes, its around +10 all of the time in the summer there. You see those wooden roads? I guess they use them so as not to step on the occasional viper.
However, people say that the main danger is not snakes but white polar bears. They are the masters of the island. Local dogs try to keep them away of the living places however often this is not very effective.
See more photos below, some are pretty atmospheric.
