The first general encyclopedia for Iranian elementary learners was published by Talaee Publication Co. with close scientific cooperation of the Iranian Cheetah Society (ICS). This colorful handbook was published in 184 pages in May 2013 as a result of efforts of more than 20 Iranian science writers and advisers together with more than 50 graphic designers to make a proper reference for school kids who just have started their learning. Nature-related chapters on vertebrates and invertebrates were compiled by the ICS experts, Fatemeh Hosseini-Zavarei, Yasaman Hasanbeigi and Melika Ghelichpour.

Besides leading professional field-based research projects in Iran, the ICS has always been a leading role in writing and publishing science for public. So far, five different books, manuals and encyclopedia have been compiled by the ICS experts, targeting mainly school kids as well as teachers, aiming to spread the word on nature protection in the community.

Covering more than 100 subject categories with 1000 colorful illustration, the newly released Talaee encyclopedia is considered as a helpful reference to promote research among kids. More information can be obtained at
