We currently support and co-coordinate a project for the conservation of the Persian leopard, Asiatic black bear and other carnivores in the arid Hormozgan Province of southern Iran in partnership with the PlanfortheLand Society.
This project is divided into two components, namely:
- A conservation survey focused on determining species status and conservation needs .
- A human-carnivore conflict management component, focused on demonstrating effective animal-friendly and practical preventive measures to reduce depredation of livestock by carnivores.
These components are respectively funded by Dutch Zoo Conservation Fund (DZCF) and Amersfoort Zoo Wildlife Fund.
