In August 2016, the Iranian Cheetah Society (ICS) in collaboration with Alborz Department of Environment launched a conservation education and capacity building project for local people in Taleghan No-Hunting Area, Alborz Province. The focus of this project was increasing local tolerance towards large carnivores, in particular the Endangered Persian leopard. ICS team used a number of education tools and awareness campaigns in selected villages inside the No-Hunting Area. Working with the young generation in schools was central to this project. ICS hopes to continue its environmental awareness campaign in other villages in the area during the following months.
