Since 1993, the Silva Forest Foundation has been working with San Francisco-based Pacific Environment to share Silva’s ideas about ecosystem-based conservation planning in boreal forests with Russian organizations and Indigenous people. Silva’s Herb and Susan Hammond have traveled to Russia in 2003, 1995, and 1993. Silva has hosted delegations of Russians in 1994, 1996, 1998, 2002, and 2004. A number of Silva’s documents have been translated into Russian by staff from Pacific Environment and are posted on this website.
