Wildlife Sightings at a Man Made Trough
Wildlife Sightings at a Man Made Trough

Droughts are silent disasters that threaten all wildlife. By implementing proper water management techniques in hard hit areas, it is possible to reduce the harmful effects of droughts.

Hence, the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation has decided to build water facilities with the help of local people, in line with the goals of the Laristan wild sheep conservation project. Dredging springs, cleaning ponds, securing reservoirs and building troughs are the main operations which need to be implemented.

In February 2015 PWHF, built a trough in the Champeh Mountain area. Mr. Hassan Ragh, our local ranger, participated in the installation of a camera trap around the said trough. The pictures below were captured and clearly depict the importance of water resources for the survival of different kinds of wildlife.

Seeing its positive effects, we would like to build more troughs. We would also like to continue implementing our prior efforts in order to bring water to wildlife where and when it’s needed.
