06-10-2014

The Nature Protection Inspectorate employees of the RA Ministry of Nature Protection Staff discovered 2 bear cubs in a weak and wretched state in Vayoc Dzor Region.

Due to the mutual efforts of the RA Ministry of Nature Protection and WWF Armenia the bear cubs were transferred, taken care of by veterinary surgeon for 2 months and recovered at a special place assigned by WWF Armenia until being taken back to wildlife.

On the eve of international day of animal protection the employees of the RA Ministry of Nature Protection and WWF Armenia returned the cubs to wildlife. They were named Khosrov and Astghik and set free in “Khosrov Forest” State Reserve protection zone which is a safer place for animals in comparison to the place they were found. The job was done under the guidance of the RA Deputy Minister Simon Papyan and WWF  Armenia director Karen Manvelyan.
