Mountains above the Brown Bear Coast, Baikal-Lenski Zapovednik (strict nature reserve) Lake Baikal is the oldest (25 million years), deepest (5700 feet) and largest lake in the world by volume(it holds 20% of the earth's liquid fresh water). Threatened by pollution and most recently by an oil pipeline, Baikal has become a rallying point for Russian and international conservationists. Baikal was declared a World Heritage Site in 1996. Boyd Norton, the photographer here, worked with Russian and U.S. environmentalists to get Baikal designated a World Heritage Site.
