WildLife in Iran – Introduction

Our beloved land Iran is one of the few countries that have different habitats and different plant and animal species according to their geographical location. The high mountains of Alborz and Zagros are lush green forests of the north, the mysterious ecosystem of the central Iranian plateau, amazing mangrove forests, numerous wetlands, and all have made this border as one of the most endangered. Named the most unique country in the world.  To know more about Wildlife in  Iran,   this article can be a rare guide. Don’t miss it!

Also, the eruption of more than 8000 species of plants, more than 500 species of birds. In addition to 160 species of mammals (including the largest and smallest mammals in the world), about 220 species of reptiles and amphibians, adds to the fascinating nature of Iran. Getting acquainted with these divine blessings and taking advantage of its magnificent and exhilarating effects cannot be possible unless you see and become interested in it.

Persian Cheetah,  the most important  aspect of wildlife in Iran

Iranian cheetah is one of the rare species endangering these days. It is on the verge of extinction, according to environmental officials. Named the Iranian Cheetah National Day on September 1, the Iranian Cheetah Conservation Society’s proposal came amid concerns that extinction was so rare and popular movements and outreach programs across the country spontaneously supported.

Human factors are identifying as a serious threat to the survival of these rare species. In the country, 15 years ago, 28 collars have been documented and eyewitnesses have been lost to human agents, and about 16 have been lost in road accidents.

The Difficulties of Living Cheetahs in a Protected Environment

Lack of hunting and loss of puppies lions and hyenas are among the factors that make it difficult for puppies to adapt to the environment. It is important to know that yews do not naturally have much ability to adapt to living in protected areas. This is why they are adopting with long distances.

Positive Consequences of Supporting the Iranian Cheetah

Conservation of cheetahs as Iran’s natural heritage shows us and the international community that Iranians value the environment of their country. Unique species such as cheetahs in Iran can provide an opportunity for ecotourism and the presence of domestic and foreign tourists. There is very little human knowledge in this area, and so far only a small fraction of species and relationships in ecosystems have been identified, eliminating this species with consequences we did not know before, and forever providing an important source of studies for understanding the world.

When the will even for the animal that project is very affluent. And it has a very strong supporter, like the UN, not seen. In general, the results of this census were very regrettable and alarming. In all the important habitats of the free zones of the country, populations of species such as whole and goat, ram, deer and various carnivorous species were either extinct. Or a very small number that was less than 10% of the previous population.

Bafgh plain was one of the main deer habitats in Iran up to 10 years ago. But it is unlikely that deer will remain in this plain.

The Golestan National Park is the Organization’s most eye-catching and focused facility. It owns over 15,000 sheep and only 1500 goats were reported.

Bistoon Protected Area is home to the world’s record-breaking habitat and more than 5,000 animals. The area’s environmentalists told experts at the center:

“See a goat in the whole area, we give you a bonus that was true”.

Here’s another need to mention other statistics such as the extinction of the Persian Zebra in the Desert National Park. The extinction of the Asian zebra in the conservation areas of Khoshilagh, Khabar National Park, and all the free zones. We don’t see small animals like sand cats, palace cats and caracals all over the country.

Better to know that most wildlife habitats have also been destroyed, such as springs, especially in desert areas. Food competition and the spread of disease and kicking and consequently complete habitat loss is also a matter of debate. All hunted areas for livestock and hunters have made it easier to access the most remote areas.
