During 2014, few hundreds of fecal samples were collected to understand dietary pattern of the leopards across three national parks in Northeastern Iran, Tandoureh, Sarigol, and Salouk. Elmira Sharbafi, a recent Master’s degree graduate in Biodiversity Management, who finished her thesis on leopard food habits in Iran using fecal analysis, joined the Project to share her expertise for illuminating dietary characteristics of the leopards in northeastern Iran. In addition, Iran Department of Environment lab has been extremely helpful to host the word and data collected. Thus far, more than 300 fecal samples have been analyzed. Such findings are essential ecological aspects of our Project, because they shed light on importance of different prey species across three National Parks for the leopard survival. Also, the research findings enable us to explore extant and intensity of human-leopard conflict to take proper actions to halt threats.
