The Royal Scottish Geographical Society has published a special issue of The Geographer magazine dedicated to the Russian Geographical Society and the geography of Russia.
The issue includes materials about the archaeological and geographical expedition of the RGS to study the Tunnug kurgan, the work of the RGS Underwater Research Center, and the protection of rare animal species by the Society. Separate articles are devoted to bilateral scientific ties of the Societies, in particular, the cooperation between Yuly Shokalsky and John Murray.
In addition, you can read about the geography of Russia in general in the magazine. The issue contains materials about the small peoples of Russia and the Russian nature reserve network – in particular, about the unique Kronotsky Nature Reserve in Kamchatka and Pleistocene Park in Yakutia.
The issue is illustrated with the works of the winners of the RGS’s photo competition "The Most Beautiful Country".
The Royal Scottish Geographical Society was established on 4th December 1884 by Henry Morton Stanley, a British journalist and famous traveler and explorer of Africa. In 1887, the Society was granted Royal Status. The Scottish Geographical Society is now an educational charity that works with a wide range of partners – from youth and community groups to academics and politicians – to inform, inspire and encourage wider audience engagement with geography.
The Royal Scottish Geographical Society's quarterly magazine, The Geographer, has a circulation of 3,000 and is aimed at both professional geographers and geography enthusiasts alike.
