Driftwood, Lena Delta, Sakha Republic, Siberia, Russia

Driftwood, both logs and whole trees, float down the Lena every year. They accumulate ashore the various river arms or make it to the sea, where they could drift with the sea ice towards Svalbard and Greenland. The Lena River and delta are host to many nature reserves, including the Lena Pillars, Beloozersky, Belyanka, Muna, Ust-Viluisky, Lena Delta Nature Reserve, and Ust-Lensky nature reserve. There is also an International Biology Station - Lena-Nordenskiöld - on the Bykovskaya channel. The whole of the Lena Delta area has been nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
