The first biosphere reserve in the South Caucasus is created

The project “Creation of Zagatala-Balaken Biosphere Reserve” is launched in Azerbaijan.
According to the Deputy Head of the Service for Biodiversity Protection of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources Arzu Samedova, the reserve, which will be created on the basis of the Zagatala State Nature Reserve, will create conditions for the development of ecotourism. There will be special trails and observation points to enjoy natural beauties without damaging the flora and fauna. In contrast to the reserve, the entrance to the biosphere reserve will be open to ecotourists.
