From now on, employees of Arevik National Park, which is part of the Zangezur Biosphere Complex, will have an opportunity to control even the most remote areas of the national park with online video cameras. This will significantly contribute to the effective preservation of the national park and poaching level decrease.

This has become possible thanks to the installation of 4 online cameras which will be powered by solar energy for the first time. This is a pilot project and, in case of positive result, it will have its continuation and will be adopted in other protected areas of Armenia.

The initiative was implemented within the framework of WWF-Armenia's Leopard Conservation project and HSBC Bank Armenia's "Let’s protect Threatened Species in Armenia" project.

This year, it’s already second time that WWF-Armenia is placing solar panels in national parks. First was in Dilijan National Park and this time is in the Arevik National Park. The use of modern technology will increase the efficiency of work, and most importantly, will contribute to the process of developing Green Armenia.
