My main environmental activities

 

۱- My first serious environmental activity started on April 2013. I decided to cycle 1100 km for the nature in 16days.

 

 ۴% of Iran’s area is jungle that most of them located in the north.  Unfortunately many parts of them are destroying by man. I decided to cycle this part of my country to inform the importance of this forests in our life cycle.

In this program I passed oak Forests, k national park,  Miankaleh peninsula and… to picturing the beauties by camera and show to the people via my website.

۳-according to UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Program ,I decided to cycle 900 Km from Yasuj to Qeshm to introduce the most four important Iranian biosphere reserves , and the ways of conserving them .And also remind their importance to local communities.

 

Most people around this route didn’t have any Info about biosphere reserves, whom are living beside these important areas!

During the cycling I have some meeting about those problems and challenging to find a solution. I took a small step to declare Biological values of my country.

 

 

Many cyclist and environmental activists warmley welcomed me .

I sailed to Qeshm and on the way I used my time to inform people about this important creature that most of the people even never heard about their vital benefits.

And also I talked about how to protect their habitat.

۵- I decided to cycle west of Iran(around 2000Km) because of so these reasons:

·        Many rivers, lakes and wetlands run dry like Lake Urmia ,Karoon river

·        Destroying of oak forests of Zagros cause unsustainable developments

·        Introduce some endangered species that are living in west part of Iran like Otis tarda, Samandar Lorestani, Tetraonidae

During this plan in most of townships like Abadan , Ahwaz , Mahshahr , Khoram Abad , Kermanshah , Sanandaj , Mahabad , Tabriz and …  I had TV interviews and educational programs and I tried to talk about surviving species and saving nature to those who were interested.
