Wind of Wanderings magazine

Our magazine is a team of like-minded fellows united by one common passion – love for the nature and various hobbies related to it: hunting, fishing, climbing, tourism, and many others. 

About partner: 

We promote an environmental friendliness, because the environment is the only indisputable value. As for the protection of this treasure, it is impossible without natural co-existence of the ever-increasing population of the planet and nature.

In the first place it’s all about ecotourism as the movement able to meet requirements of a human making use of natural resources without the risk of damage to their future rehabilitation. If we take into consideration the fact that today there is no precise and universal definition of ecotourism, the team of our periodical comprehends this phenomenon in a rather broad sense. Notably, as the active form of human recreation, as the relations between humans and nature based on the civilized use of natural wealth without any damage to the nature itself (without any doubts including into ecotourism such forms of the environmental management as hunting and fishing on the basis of the efficient system of hunting and fishery businesses).

The “Wind of Travel” project is the first periodical in Kazakhstan and Central Asia with the distinct commitment to the ecotourism, nature protection, and harmonious exploitation of flora and fauna; it’s our method of putting a message across to people and resolving of acute problems, and of achieving very important, to our mind, goals.
