Expedition in cooperation withNABU



This Caucasian leopard, wolf and bear conservation volunteer expedition to Armenia will take you to the remote, spectacular and beautiful Khustup Mountains in the Zangezur Biodiversity Complex. There you will record leopards, lynx, bears, wolves, ibex, birds and other indicators of biodiversity in an effort to assist local NGOs and authorities in their work of wilderness and wildlife protection. You will be working as part of a small international team from a tent base camp at 1,980 m (where altitude sickness is not an issue). You will be covering ground in the expedition vehicles and on foot, looking for tracks, kills, scats and the animals themselves, and setting camera traps. A true expedition-style base camp, off-road driving and the breathtaking high mountains make this a challenging, but very rewarding expedition.

“After 40 years experience in the mountains and 20 years of nature conservation volunteering, we have just had two perfect weeks of merging these two and enriching our lives. We have seen breathtaking landscapes, learnt a lot and met like-minded people. Biosphere Expeditions is an extraordinary organisation and our days in the Tien Shan will stay with us forever.”  (Because this is a new expedition with no testimonials yet, this quote is taken from another of our high mountain expeditions) more testimonials
