Funds allocated to conserve Golestan National Park

Financial Tribune – Iran’s Department of Environment has allocated about $200,000 for the enhancement of environmental protection infrastructures at the Golestan National Park.

The technical committee of the park’s management council convened for the first time on Thursday.

DOE’s deputy for natural environment Hamid Zohrabi told the meeting that of the allocated funds, $115,000 will be spent on acquiring modern equipment and completing the studies on Golestan’s biosphere reserves.

“The remainder will be used to renovate park ranger facilities across the Golestan National Park,” he said, as quoted by the DOE’s website.
