A Russian ballerina from the renowned Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg has made her own contribution to saving a pristine bay on the Gulf of Finland from development.

Ilmira Bagautdinova is one of thousands speaking out against plans to construct a port terminal for grain shipments on Batareinaya Bay, a beach roughly 100 kilometers west of Russia’s second-largest city. In a video on Facebook, the ballerina performs a dance from Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” in a nod to the swans that inhabit the area.

“A unique natural and historical place where swans nest in spring, families with children rest in summer and hundreds of fishermen go out on the ice in winter … Nature in harmony with people. All of this is under threat of destruction,” Bagautdinova wrote, urging people to sign a petition calling on President Vladimir Putin to halt the beach’s development, wrote The Moscow Times.
