Researchers struggle to register birds as geopolitics hinder border cooperation

9

In this video report, we go on a boat trip with the Norwegian researchers along the Pasvik River where the border between Arctic Russia and Norway is right in the middle. Researchers, who are here to register bird species, tell us about a problem they face – since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, they can’t cooperate with their Russian colleagues on the other side of the river. Climate change, pollution, protection of the different species… How is this border area dealing with all the issues? The video is in English with Russian subtitles.
