Reintroduction of gazelles are carried out on the initiative of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation

Some endangered animals in Azerbaijan are reintroduced into their historical habitats.


Currently, reintroduction of gazelles are carried out following the Heydar Aliyev Foundation’s initiative. Number of gazelles in Azerbaijan has reached 10 thousand head. Due to high increase in the number of gazelles in the Shirvan National Park, some of them are moved to other territories.


Reintroduction of other endangered animals in Azerbaijan is also planned.
