Spain is also one of the leading countries in the list of World Heritage sites. UNESCO protects 44 sites there. Among the most famous ones we should note the coast of Ibiza. It is home to posidonia oceanica, a seagrass only found in the Mediterranean. The seagrass supports a diverse coastal and marine ecosystem.

One more Spanish protected site is Teide National Park, famous for Mount Teide. It is a volcano and the highest elevation in Spain.

In this UNESCO List there are 26 Russian places. One of them is Lake Baikal, the oldest and the deepest lake in the world. Situated in Irkutsk Oblast’, the lake contains 20% of the world's total unfrozen freshwater reserve. 

In this list we can also see one of the most outstanding volcanic regions in the world – the Volcanoes of Kamchatka. This region is so unique, because of a high density of active volcanoes.

One more heritage site is Lena Pillars Nature Park. It is marked by magnificent (100 m in height) rock pillars. They stand along the banks of the Lena River in the central part of the Sakha Republic.

This list is really long; all the heritage sites are worth mentioning. A little bit later we will talk about the Russian sites in detail.

The highest elevation in Spain is Mount Teide. -

Posidonia oceanica can found not only in the Mediterranean. -

Protection of environment

First of all, we should clean our own garbage. Besides, sometimes it is necessary to urge others to do the same. For some of you this may seem a simple requirement, but the lake really has problems because of the neglect of such a simple rule.

Coming to the conclusion, it is important to say, that Baikal is of vital importance not only for Russia, but for the whole world. Indeed, we must not turn a blind eye to this problem; everyone can contribute greatly to the preservation of the national heritage for the future generations. So, let’s get started?

The ecology of the lake is under threat nowadays due to the growing flow of tourism. This flow is rarely controlled or planned. As a result, the coast of the lake and the water itself are polluted, the forests are damaged, too.

If there is a problem, there should be a solution. How can we – potential tourists – help the sacred lake?

Let’s talk about the largest freshwater reservoir on Earth. So, well, we are going to speak about ancient Lake Baikal, the Pearl of Siberia.

You have already learnt about the UNESCO World Heritage List. You know, how beautiful and valuable these places are for the whole world, for the humanity. However, there is the worry that tourism is damaging them.

Doing all these things volunteers visit picturesque places of the Pearl of Siberia, so, such a work is really worth trying!
