Tour “Landscapes of the Okhotsk seacoast”

Variant 1. The Ola lagoon

 

The Ola lagoon is located 25km east from Magadan, - it is one of the key places of the mass nesting and migration stay of considerable number of the waterfowl and semiaquatic birds. The lagoon is separated from the sea by the system of spits and islands, which in the summer period serves as nesting places for almost ten thousand pairs of larids. Pebble, sand and silt littorals, uncovered during the low tide – are important forage habitats for a lot of species of migrating sandpipers, ducks and gooses. There is the extensive overgrowth of eelgrass all over the littoral. During the spring period when in the Ola lagoon one can observe the mass spawning of the Pacific herring, dozens of bears and Steller’s sea eagles can be also seen along its coasts.

The western coasts of the lagoon are covered with larch forest; coastal herb and short grass meadows – marches are distributed there. Eastern coasts are known for the Atargan refugium of rare and endemic plants; besides, one of the largest populations of the pea shrub over the Sea of Okhotsk coast is located here.

 Variant 2. Veselaya Bay

 

    

Veselaya Bay runs deep into the mid part of the Staritsky Penninsular coast between the Vostochny cape (south entrance cape of Veselaya Bay) and the Krasny cape (north). Coasts of the bay, except for the peak, are elevated. The similarly named stream falls into the low coast of the peak of the bay. Half a kilometer ashore from the stream estuary there is a rocky small island “Vdovushka”, which during the low water is connected with the coastline by the broad sand-stony shoal. The bay is picturesque and rich in biological objects. Ground variety of the littoral zone preconditions the species diversity of hydrobionts: there are abundant settlements of infauna in the sands of different silting degree. On the stony-sand littoral at the foot of the Vdovushka Island there are all large taxa of macrophyts and invertebrates (from sponges to hemichordates and tunicates). In the littoral basins one can meet characteristic inhabitants of the sublittoral zone (starfish, sea urchins, bivalve mussels Panomyaarctica, Phoronida).

 All events mentioned above are organized for the Conference participants on a fee-free basis.
