Dr. Anatoly Barnyashev was recommended to me by Svetlana, who worked with him in St. Petersburg. His manner is cold even by Russian standards. But his work? Organized, disciplined and profoundly insightful. More animals migrate to and through the taiga every year, displaced by climate change. Anatoly is determined to help wildlife adapt to the changing environment, seeking healthy sustainable domains for displaced creatures- Sometimes I attribute Anatoly's icy demeanor to the fact that he prefers the company of animals more than his fellow humans.
