On October 26, the Syunik Territorial Department of the State Environmental Inspectorate under the RA Ministry of Nature Protection got a new off-road vehicle which was donated by the Association for Wildlife Protection (AWP) based in Germany through WWF Armenia.

AWP supports environmental protection and one of its main directions is to support the conservation of the leopard. AWP in collaboration with WWF Germany expressed its willingness to support to the strengthening of Caucasian leopard conservation in the territory of the Republic of Armenia by donating a Lada Niva to the Syunik Territorial Department of the Environmental Inspectorate.

The main habitats of the Caucasian leopard are located in Syunik region. Thus, in order to organize patrolling and protection of the leopard and species of its prey more effectively, the off-road vehicle was provided to the Syunik Territorial Department of the Environmental Inspectorate.
