The Iranian Cheetah Society (ICS) is monitoring Miandasht Wildlife Refuge, one of the key cheetah reserves in northeastern Iran, since 2004. Following the second phase of ICS’ nation-wide cheetah monitoring program in 2014-15, we continued to monitor important water sources in this reserve with the aid of camera traps. Here you can see a sample collection of wildlife pictures from our camera traps, including new photos from a cheetah family, gray wolves, striped hyena, gazelles, and several pictures of birds of prey.

ICS’ camera-trapping survey of Miandasht is running in collaboration with North Khorasan Provincial Office of Iran Department of Environment and CACP.
