About 40 Geological Parks could be opened in Kazakhstan, Tengrinews.kz reports, citing Ilya Fishman, member of Kazakhstan Geographic Society’s Academic Board as saying at the conference called Potential of the Earth and People that was held in Astana. “There are 500 sites in our database now. We are choosing the most interesting sites to open at least 40 geological parks in Kazakhstan,” Ilya Fishman said. According to the scientist, geological parks are regions with a special status. Earth’s geological history, formation of rocks and mineral deposits can be traced visually at these sites. Tours are usually held in geological parks. “Establishment of geological parks is a way to preserve Kazakhstan's national heritage and contribute to the country's economy. This is a way to improve the quality of life through creating new jobs. These sites will also help us educate people about our home country and its nature,” Fishman said.
