I am a passionate white water kayaker and hope to visit the Kamchatka peninsula one day. I am of Latvian decent and plan to live there and travel to Russia for many reasons…therefore I am very excited to learn of your expedition today from reading a magazine I can't quite remember the title of! Anyway…wish I could join!
What an awesome project! I'm glad you came to me to do your airline tickets. I hope your documentary will be on TV eventually so I can see it. Thanks guys! Tracy
Thanks for your help, Tracy! Keep tuned to this site and our facebook page to learn more and get updates about eventual broadcast dates…
I have just seen the wild Russia segment and sadly to say I was alittle let down because of the encroachment of man.I am a man of the wilderness and I would like to know how I can possibly help in any way? And yes I would be willing to travel to help.It's to beautiful of a place to see disappear. Thank You
That Wild Russia segment has done a great job of bringing some much needed attention to Kamchatka. With your support we'll be able to keep the ball rolling by producing media and stories that help Kamchatka's pristine wilderness gain the international public interest it needs to endure. Help us out by donating today here, learning about Kamchatka on this site, and letting your friends know about the project.
Exciting stuff! I spent five weeks on the coast of Kamchatka Peninsula with 50 American and Russian students and teachers in the summer of1993. It was at the end of my second year of teaching. We were dropped off by a fishing tender and fended for ourselves camping next to a salmon stream. It was an adventure full of adventures including a broken-down boat (the tender), facing off a grizzly bear who ate much of our camp's food (with no weapons because they are not allowed in Russian wilderness), a Japanese earthquake-caused tsunami, and torrential rains not to mention unperiled beauty, remote pristine wilderness and some serious bonding experiences with my students and colleagues. I will be following your expedition closely and wishing you safe travels and solid research!
Sounds like an exciting adventure! Thanks for sharing
This is a great project and a great website. Do you have any clothing items for sale to help promote the expedition?
Funny that you ask! We JUST made a new batch of Kamchatka Project T-shirts and will be offering them on the site within the next week! Keep posted
