The expedition to Yakutia
Can dinosaurs which lived millions of years ago change for the better the life of modern
citizens of mega polices and remote parts of our country? Definitely. We shall disclose
their positive influence taking polar dinosaurs of Suntar usul of Sakha republic (Yakutia)
as an example.
The remains of the proto creatures were found here (Republic Sakha (Yakutia), Suntar
ulus, small river Taetae) in 1960. However, until not long ago, the researches had been
made by a Yakut scientist, a geology mineralogy PhD Piotr Colosov with the help of
local youth from Khoro village. It was only in 2017 that they managed to organize an
expedition for both Yakut and Saint-Petersburg explorers. At the present moment we
can certainly prove that both herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs habituated on the
territory of Yakutia about 145-125 million years ago.
Thanks to these works, Yakutia can become recognized not only as the Motherland of
mammoths but also as the land of polar dinosaurs. However, our project is not solely
concerned with scientific activity – it is a privilege of experts, but also with the social
significance of this polar scientific experiment taking place in Yakutia. On the one hand,
we want to fix the stages of the final expedition, which can bring us closer to the world
discovery. On the other hand, our project is to research within socio-cultural factor of
consolidation of the peoples in researching experiment and getting unique results
thanks to this cooperation.
This project can help radically change the attitude of the native population towards their own land. Since every span of this perpetually frozen soil keeps the mystery of the
evolution of life on Earth.
