Warning signboard installation work is now in progress on the boundary of Sorkhankol Wildlife Refuge. As of 8th Nov, eight (8) signboards were installed in the north area of the Sorkhankol Wildlife Refuge.
Mr. Hassanpour, zoning expert of Department of Environment (DOE), Mr. Yaghoub Rakhshebahar, the head of Ghalamgudeh Guard Station DOE, Mr. Watanabe, JICA expert, and the contractor conducted joint inspection of the signboards on 8th November.
The three wildlife refuges and one protected area are the most important cores of the Anzali Wetland Zoning Plan. However there are a few warning signboards on the boundary of each protected area. Therefore visitors and local people could not notice the boundary of protected areas until now.
As first step, one of the Joint Pilot Activity (JPA) was planned to install on the boundary of Sorkhankol Wildlife Refuge, Selkeh Wildlife Refuge and Siakeshim Protection Area with technical and financial assistance from JICA. Eight (8) signboards were now installed on the boundary of Sorkhankol Wildlife Refuge under the JPA. The other twenty two (22) signboards will be installed by December.
JICA expert team strongly hopes that these warning signboards will support to prevent the illegal activities and land use in these areas.
