Tiger Day at Russia’s Primeval Nature festival on 26 March

14 February 2022

The 10th Russia’s Primeval Nature festival will take place in Moscow on 4 March – 3 April. The festival will mark Tiger Day on 26 March, with lectures by representatives of protected areas and public organisations in the tiger habitat, as well as documentaries about the endangered predator.


The festival will feature over 450 unique photos of Russian wildlife. There will also be screenings of nature documentaries, as well as lectures, workshops and meetings with scientists, photographers and travellers.


This year, the main exhibition is dedicated to landscapes and ways to photograph them. The Seasons photo project, which took the Union of Wildlife Photographers two years to create, will show visitors the annual cycle of life in Russian nature.


“This year, the exhibition and festival programme are very full and diverse. Everyone who wants to rediscover Russia and view it from a different angle should visit,” said Tamara Panteleyeva, head of the Russia’s Primeval Nature festival.


The festival space will be divided into several areas. Visitors will enjoy hundreds of scientific lectures, meetings with travellers and researchers, screenings of the latest nature documentaries, workshops, tours for children and adults, and presentations of the most important Russian environmental protection projects.


Every weekend will be dedicated to a specific theme: environmental protection, science, animals, travels, ethnography or documentaries. The thematic days of the festival will be presented by its partners: Roszapovedtsentr of the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Mospriroda, the Union of Wildlife Photographers, the Moscow State University Zoological Museum, Zhivaya Planeta (Living Planet) television channel, the Vernadsky Nongovernmental Ecological Foundation, Birds and People Partnership, Mir Television Company, Perspektiva magazine and others.


The festival will take place on 4 March – 3 April 2022 in the Russian Union of Artists halls of the New Tretyakov Gallery’s west wing (10 Krymsky Val Street, Moscow).
