HELIANA DUNDAROVA, BULGARIAN ECOLOGIST:
- Southern part of Kyrgyzstan is a cross-border territory. Bats and invertebrates live in caves. At the legislative level, we want to guard caves and colonies, which are important for an ecosystem of Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan.
The conference is organized by the Biodiversity Conservation Society. It includes approximately 1000 environmental specialists from more than 100 countries around the world. New scientific discoveries and research in the conservation of Asian ecosystems were presented at the conference.
ZHEENBEK KULENBEKOV, PROFESSOR, AMERICAN UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL ASIA
- At this conference, scientists communicated with each other as well as presented their work, achievements and results. Our scientists from Kyrgyzstan and Central Asia had the opportunity to communicate with these scientists and get an international experience, including new areas and methods of research.
The conservation of biodiversity is one of global environmental problems of humankind and every year it becomes more acute with the disappearance of species of living organisms as a result of ill-considered development of the agrarian sector, forestry and environmental pollution. Experts highlight that only joining the efforts it is possible to stop this process. The participation of each state is important here.
