Every season the complex expedition "Hogland" continues scientific research in different directions; and at the same time each season is devoted it to a particular topic. Thus, in 2014 it was conducted under the auspices of geological research, and 2015 was marked by a unique operation to rescue dozens of military-technical historical objects on Bolshoy Tyuters Island. The objects were taken to the mainland and then transferred to museums and restorations. And in 2016, it was devoted to ecology.
Within a month the team of the expedition and volunteers, chosen during the All-Russian competition, eliminated the consequences of anthropogenic impact on the natural systems of a number of islands, and cleaned them. They also took part in the restoration of historical lighthouses.
Guys faced really hard work, living in field camps in complete isolation from civilization, on harsh and fabulously beautiful islands, where you can understand what the unpredictable Baltic weather is like and test yourself, your character, and your ability to work. And of course, it is a chance to learn a lot about your native country, and gain a unique experience and loyal friends.
Volunteers usually prepare for difficult but incredibly interesting weekdays during special two-day trainings on the mainland..
