Kazakhstan Ð On the Shore of Lake Tengiz
by Guy Laliberté

Kazakhstan has about 17,000 natural lakes in its territory, including Lake Tengiz, one of the three largest lakes in the country, with an area of 1,590 km2. This lake, located in a nature reserve that is a UNESCO World Heritage site, is protected by the major international Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. More than 15 million birds have their habitat in this area of exceptional natural beauty, including 500 mating pairs of Dalmatian pelicans, an endangered species, and 1,300 mating pairs of black-headed gulls. Continual efforts are being made to preserve the precarious ecological equilibrium of their habitat, which is threatened by pollution from the nearby city of Temirtau.
