Altai Krai is in top 10 of the Russian Federation ecological list
Altai Krai took the sixth place in the general ecological rating made by all-Russian public organization “Green Patrol.” The organization annually rates the ecological top subjects of Russia. During its development experts take into account environmental as well as industrial, social and ecological indexes.
The main reason of high place in the rating is the lack of significant technological environmental impact, noted in the Main Department of Natural Resources and Ecology of Altai Krai. An important element is also the public policy in the sphere of environment. Thus, hydroprotective facilities are constantly built and reconstructed in the Krai, the natural protected areas are expanded, and there is monitoring of the natural complexes preservation. Active regional ecological movement also contributes to Altai nature conservation.
