I saw with my own eyes that the life is really coming back into the North Aral Sea, there are many fishes. In the late afternoon, when the heat subsides, there are mammals, many reptiles, snakes, and various rodents. There are plans to further increase the water area of the Aral Sea and we hope that ‘KazakhGeo’ will also contribute, in particular, in the development of this region, in its study, so that to tell about the region to Kazakhstan and around the world.
