About Us

Siberian Environmental Center is a regional charitable non-governmental organization that was officially founded in October 1999 and received the legal status on 24th February 2000. SibEcoCenter works in the area of the Novosibirsk region, the Altaisk region and the Republic of Altai, and also in other regions of the .

SibEcoCenter was created by the members of the Novosibirsk branch of the Brigade for Nature Conservation and Novosibirsk State University (NGU) Ecoclub, an unofficial non-governmental organization with which SibEcoCenter today shares the office facilities provided by the Faculty of Natural Sciences of NGU. In practice, all employees of the SibEcoCenter are also members of the Ecoclub. The director of SibEcoCenter, Alexander Dubynin, is also the curator of the Ecoclub.

SibEcoCenter carries out activities within the frames of charitable programmes and projects that are decided upon by the Center’s Council and confirmed by the General Meeting. Any member of the organization can initiate programmes and projects. SibEcoCenter has 10 employees and more than 30 volunteers. The organization’s work has two main directions; projects that are directly related to the conservation of nature, and projects with a social approach that aim to inform and educate the public about current environmental concerns.

Main directions of our activities:

  - The pristine nature: the study of pristine ecosystems and vulnerable species in Southern Siberia and Eastern Kazakhstan, identification and monitoring of important bird and plant territories.
  - Special protected natural territories: participation in the planning and creation of the network of territories, long-term support and help in securing the functioning of the system.
  - Protection of the civil rights: Protecting the health of natural ecosystems against industrial and construction projects and unsustainable natural resource use.
  - Societal control: Monitoring the observance of laws in relation to nature conservation, water resource and forest resource use and of the condition of the vulnerable territories.
  - Trade control: Monitoring and counteracting the illegal sale of plants and animals in Southern Siberia.

Re-establishment of forest protection service
Greenpeace Russia has started to collect signatures for a letter addressed to the Russian president, which demands re-establishment of state forest protection that would be a federal service, organizationally and financially independent from other state organs that deal with forest resource use, and would involve adequate number of staff (no less than 20 thousand inspectors). Such number of federal inspectors would mean operational groups of three people for each forest management unit in the regions of the country that are inhabited and accessible to transportation.
Tragedy in Altai: One more kill from the illegal hunt of argali
During an investigative expedition to the Sailyugem mountain range by Geblerov Ecological Society, the remains of one more killed argali (mountain sheep) was found, adding to the sad result of the illegal hunting trip that took place in the Altai on January 9 and ended with the helicopter crashing down and killing 7 people, including some high-ranking federal and local officials. During investigations on the south-west side of the mountain Chernaya on 28 May, the members of the Geblerov Society found the remains of a nine-year-old male mountain sheep (argali).
