Alexey Yablokov is well-known as an active ecologist, member of the party “Yabloko”, where he heads the “Green Russia” faction. People say that the party was actually named after him, although he joined it much later. Not everyone knows that Alexey Vladimirovich is an outstanding scientist, a biologist with a worldwide reputation, corresponding member and counsellor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, as well as chairman of the Council for marine mammals that, by his own admission, are the love of all his life. We are not kings of the nature, Yablokov is sure, but only one of the numerous species living on the planet. While we are looking for intelligent life somewhere in the vastness of the Universe, other civilizations are existing beside us. Dolphins and whales, in his opinion, undoubtedly are their representatives. However, we are not absolutely ready for the contact with them. That’s probably why we do not manage to reach out to those who live much further.
