A Guide to the Biodiversity of Deir ez-Zor Area

The following photographs are of Ahmad Aidak (Syria) showing his book A Guide to the Birdlife Area to interested rangers and officials in the field. This book, written in Arabic and using photographs taken mainly by the author, was published in summer 2010 with financial support from OSME, Avifauna and SSCW (the Syrian Society for the Conservation of Wildlife). It is proving to be a very valuable resource for familiarising the local population with the their natural heritage and is a wonderful example of what can be done to promote conservation and wildlife at the local level.
