Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, first Iranian NGO to figure in CACP’s Document

The Document for the 2nd phase of the Conservation of the Asiatic Cheetah Program (CACP) was signed on Sunday November 3rd 2013, between Iran’s Department of Environment (DoE) and the United Nation Development Program (UNDP). In this Document, which has been signed to be valid until 2015, the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation (PWHF) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) are also present.
The Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation voluntarily joined the CACP’s 2nd phase following the DoE’s showing interest in collaborating with NGOs. The Foundation has committed to collaborate in providing monetary aid and facility such as supplying the project with experts, the provision of resources getting as high as 100.000 USD in the 3 years of the 2nd phase of the project. PWHF experts have already started to collaborate in the planning of the first steps of this phase. In the future, these activities will focus more on research, monitoring and local empowerment. The PWHF envisages aggregating its present research, cultural and conservational activities, such as its 2 years of work on “Conservation of Turan Biosphere Reserve Project”, with actions which will assist CACP in accomplishing its goals.

PWHF, along with its national and international partners and with the help and support from experts, volunteers, artists, sponsors and other NGOs will try it’s best to plan and implement the most effective actions to conserve Asiatic cheetahs in Iran.
