Establishment of the leopard national monitoring scheme in accordance with the Persian Leopard National Action Plan in Iran
Establishment of the leopard national monitoring scheme in accordance with the Persian Leopard National Action Plan in Iran
This project is formed following by two previous projects concerning the Persian leopard (i.e. IRA/SGP/OP5/Y2/STAR/BD/12/02(168) and IRA/SGP/OP5/Y3/STAR/BD/13/07(183)) started since 2012 in Iran. The activities in this project mainly focuses on an article highlighted in the Persian Leopard National Action Plan in the country to design and establish an innovative monitoring scheme to provide a basis for systematic monitoring of the Persian leopard population and habitat across the country. Establishment of a national monitoring scheme focusing on the Persian leopard is vital since the main population of this leopard subspecies in the region is inhabiting in Iran and this population also supports the Persian leopard presence in the neighboring countries. Yet, earlier studies by the Asian Leopard Specialist Society (grantee) signified that the leopard distribution in Iran is in the process of splitting to two fragmented parts while such fragmentation may eventually effects the overall Persian leopard status in the region.
Focusing on the establishment of an individual monitoring site in a network of selected sites, the entire process is on the basis of a participatory mechanism that is developed by active involvement of members of the related local community. This is a win-win platform that is independent from external funds while it is integrated into the local livelihood in selected sites.
