Turkey’s first wildlife corridor

Turkeys-first-wildlife-corridorEfforts are underway to create Turkey’s first corridor. The new 82km long corridor will conserve over 23,000 ha. The corridor will protect Turkey’s great diversity of plants and animals, including the Caucasian lynx, brown bear, and Anatolian leopard. Turkey is is home to three biodiversity hotspots, and supports a great diversity of endemic species, including 3000 species of endemic plants. The new corridor, which connects a wildlife preserve that borders Georgia and Armenia, will facility international conservation efforts.
