About the project

This project allowed to reverse the situation with the highly endangered species in the region. There were about 350 — 400 deer in Central Asia in 1999 when the project started — and the results of the 2006 census showed that now about 1000 deer live here.

Deer reintroduction was initiated in 3 sites, which had been inhabited by these animals till the middle of the previous century.

The political result of our activity is the Memorandum and Action plan of understanding on Bukhara deer conservation that was signed in the frame of Bonn Convention by all 4 range states.
