Stop At: Starichkov Island, Yelizovo Russia
Starichkov Island is located near the entrance to Avacha Bay. Its area is small - about half a square kilometer, but in this small area there are about 44 nesting colonies of ten species of marine colonial birds. Pacific seagulls, thick-billed murre, bering cormorants, red-faced cormorants, ordinary old men, after whom the island is named, and other species are found here. In 1981, in order to preserve the bird markets and create conditions for quiet nesting and breeding of birds, the island was declared a natural monument. Every year, employees of the Kamchatka branch of the Pacific Geographical Institute of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and visiting specialists carry out scientific observations of various groups of living organisms here.
