The ecological expedition came back from Beliy Island, where during a month its participants had dismantled ramshackle constructions and prepared platform for summer work on cleaning of the territory.
This information was given by the chief of the arctic ecological expedition Vladimir Pushkaryov to journalists.
The spring stage of the ecological expedition, which included not volunteers but high-qualified specialists on servicing of machinery, lasted one month. The participants cleaned the island from old rusty casks and broken old motor vehicles. By the words of Vladimir Pushkaryov, in spite of strong winds the participants worked during 12 hours per day. Several times work was postponed because of strong hurricane wind. Once the workers met a white bear, who visited them on the Polar station, but dogs drove it away.
Already in June the participants again will go to the next expedition to continue work on removal of old motor vehicles.
