Expedition participants visit Cape Rogaty
Having completed benthal sampling in the Pechora Sea, the Marine Mammal Council researchers, the WWF experts, the LMSU Marine Research Center employees and the Polar Expedition Gallery photographers embarked for Cape Rogaty, northern Vaygach Island. Another log cabin, which is in dire need of repair, is located there, on the Dyrovaty Peninsula. The expedition participants did not manage to find the owner Vasily, ethnic Nenets, at home. Thus, they carefully stacked pre-readied roofing felt by his house. The participants plan to visit the local on their way back and help him with the repairs. The following destinations for Kartesh are Cape Bolvansky Nos and Cape Bely Nos on Vaygach Island.
