News about Ranger Manuk
Reserve ranger: Manuk Manukyan
Partner organisation: Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC)
Armenia is one of the world’s lesser-known biodiversity hotspots and ranger Manuk, a trained vet, works to protect the Buffer Zone Reserve from illegal hunting and logging, a widespread problem throughout the country.
The reserve is home to Brown Bears, Grey Wolves and Bezoar Goats – a native subspecies of wild goat with horns nearly as long as its body.
Manuk said: "I would love to see a leopard in the reserve, after spotting one in the area about a decade ago."
