Khosrov reserve: Who will be the new director?

November 16, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Three nominees are running for the position of Director of “Khosrov Forest” State Reserve – Manuk Manukyan, Gabriel Poghosyan and Garnik Shaboyan. Ecolur, an informational NGO, says there isn’t any information available on their activities or professional background.

The position of Khosrov state reserve is one of the most discussed topics in environmental society after its director and several employees were dismissed last October following illegal hunting cases.

The cases were reported by the group of the environmentalist activists, who found in the forest the evidence of the illegal hunting- remains of killed animals listed in the Red Book of endangered species and traces of bonfires and barbecue parties. The activists have applied to police and a criminal case was launched.
