VLADIVOSTOK, September 3. /TASS/. Hollywood star Pamela Anderson has sold a safety buoy featured in the Baywatch series at a charity auction held in Vladivostok as part of the Eastern Economic Forum underway here. The buyer paid 3 million rubles (about $44,800) for it.
The starting price of the lot was 250,000 rubles ($ 3,730). The scope of bidders included Andrey Varichev, the CEO of Metalloinvest company but the buoy was purchased eventually by a man, whom his representatives identified only by the first name as Ildar.
The 3,000,000 rubles he paid for the lot will be used to protect rare and endangered wildlife animal species, including the Siberian tigers and Amur leopards.
The official closing of the auction falls on September 5, which is the last day of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, but a decision was taken at a meeting behind closed doors on Thursday to sell several lots earlier, including the ones listed by Anderson. Other extravagant lots included an opportunity to give a name to a young leopard living on the Russian-Chinese border.
Pamela Anderson arrived at the Eastern Economic Forum at the invitation of the Natural Resource Minister, Sergey Donskoi. On Thursday, they had a meeting on the sidelines of the forum.
Donskoi showed the actress the trees planted in the Russia Alley on the compound of the Federal Far-Eastern University. She was also familiarized with exhibitions devoted to the Siberian tigers and Kamchatkan bears.
On the same day, she visited Gray the Tiger - a tiger who became famous all across Russia as a survivor of this week’s hair-raising flood of Ussuriysk that trapped all the animals locked in their cages
Anderson said she liked her stay in Vladivostok.
