To mark 25 years since the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) opened its office in Russia, RT’s documentary channel RTDoc is teaming up with WWF-Russia to film a special documentary about the work of the fund in the country. The documentary, Freed to be Wild, will air on RT.
The documentary focuses on WWF-Russia employees who work hard to save rare and endangered species living in the wild across Russia, such as the Amur tiger and leopard, saker falcon and white bear. Filming is taking place in some of Russia’s most remote regions, such as Primorsky Krai, South Siberia and Chukotka.
“The work done to conserve nature in various parts of our country often goes unnoticed, and documentaries like this one help raise people’s awareness about these important — and at times dangerous — efforts. For 25 years, WWF-Russia employees have been doing their best to preserve nature, and we are happy about our joint project with RTDoc that is launching on our 25-year anniversary,” said Yury Sochnev, Communications Director at WWF-Russia.
WWF work to preserve the Amur tiger population in the Russian Far East is carried out in close cooperation with the relevant authorized government agencies, with the help of the Amur Tiger Center and WWF-Russia.
