In collaboration with Conservation of the Asiatic Cheetah Project and Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, the Iranian Cheetah Society (ICS) launches training workshops for rangers in cheetah reserves of Iran. Rangers from four different cheetah reserves attended the first workshop at Kavir National Park, Semnan province. Last updates about the status of cheetahs in Iran, conservation efforts in different sites, preliminary results of the recent camera-trapping studies, and working with local people and community-based management of cheetah reserves were among the issues presented in the workshop. These series of workshops are going to be continued in other cheetah reserves during 2015/2016.
