Excursion in Georgia

Excursion_1_GeorgiaAs part of the campaign, on 2nd June, 17 children from the school in Kaspi went for an excursion. It was the most joyful part of the campaign. Children waited for this day since the beginning of the project. As Georgia has wide biodiversity, we decided to take participants who live in the east part of Georgia, to the west part of the country, which is famous for its national reserves.

There is a karst cavern and traces of giant reptiles - extinct dinosaurs on the territory. There is an extinct volcano crater in the Nature Reserve. Sataplia Nature reserve is mountainous, it's great area is covered by most beautiful and multifarious wood strain Colchian type mixed forests In Sataplia Children had a chance to see Kolkhetian forest.

He also spoke about the fauna of the place (from mammals we can find here: bear, fox, jackal, lynx, deer, hare, badger, white marten, squirrel, etc.; from birds: jay, cuckoo, nightingale, woodcock, etc.) The place is also interesting for its changed biodiversity.
