Wildlife

Our home is their home too. The mountainous country of Armenia is home to diverse animal life. Many of these animals, however, are considered to be rare and endangered, and are already on the brink of extinction.

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

All life forms, from large predatory mammals to microscopic organisms, contribute to the ecosystem in their own unique ways, but sadly many species today are endangered, as their natural habitats are being destroyed by humans for land development and farming.

Our biodiversity is the foundation of the sustainability of life on the planet as a whole, including our own as humans. While we might focus more on specific animals like the Caucasian Leopard, the Armenian Mouflon, the Brown Bear, Eurasian Lynx and Bezoar Goats, our work in the area benefits the entire ecosystem and landscape.

Did you know?

There are more than 3000 Bezoar Goats and 300 - 400 Armenian Mouflons living in Armenia.

We also work with local communities which live near major wildlife areas, enabling them to find alternative sources of income, in ways which benefit not only them but the wildlife around them.
