We are busy with the second phase of our nation-wide cheetah monitoring program in several key reserves in Yazd province. During this summer we have focused our trapping efforts on water points, as water scarcity in this region forces many wildlife species, including cheetahs, to visit water points more frequently. Here you can see some of these pictures obtained from Dare-Anjir Wildlife Refuge in central Iran. The Iranian Cheetah Society’s cheetah monitoring program is running in collaboration with Iran Department of the Environment and Conservation of the Asiatic Cheetah Project.
