Defend UNESCO Heritage Site from gas pipeline

Prevent the Ukok Plateau gas pipeline
Prevent the Ukok Plateau gas pipeline

Herodotus called this place "the pastures of heaven." And its all at risk!

The Altai people are working feverishly to protect the ancient and fragile sacred cultural heritage of global importance, including mummies preserved in permafrost, from being laid waste by a gas pipeline that, according to independent assessments, provides no net economic benefit to Russia, but immeasurable loss of human heritage in one of the last truly pristine environments on Earth.

Your donation, large or small, funds the preventive efforts of Altai leaders who are dedicated to protecting the ancient Altai cultural/environmental heritage for future generations.
