The annual national project «Bird of the Year» is being implemented
Every year the Association for the Conservation of Biodiversity of Kazakhstan together with the Union for the Protection of Birds of the Republic chooses the «Bird of the Year». The selected species will become a symbol of conservation work, and special research on the species will be carried out, information booklets and posters will be distributed, children`s drawing contests and other events will be held. In this regard, the Abai KazNPU, the Institute of Natural Sciences and Geography and the Almaty Zoo jointly implemented the republican project «Bird of the Year». Within the framework of this project, the drawing competition «About Birds» and the exhibition «Bird on the Nest» were initiated.
Students of grades 1-11 and students of 1-2 courses of pedagogical universities take part in the project.
From March 1 to March 10, 307 students from 43 schools presented their paintings at the exhibitions «About Birds» and «A Bird in the Nest». The professional artists of the university appreciated these paintings and made a decision. Today, March 2, 2021, the opening of exhibition has been represented. This exhibition is aimed not only at ecological and ecological goals, but also at strengthening the ties between pedagogical universities and schools.
