Human Activity Squeezing Nature Reserve in Fars

Urban development has once again encroached on the boundaries of the so-called protected area in Kazeroun, Fars Province, which is a natural habitat of the rare Persian fallow deer.
Bulldozers and heavy-duty machinery have cut down hundreds of trees and flattened other vegetation within the limits of Arjan and Parishan Biosphere Reserve in the province, and right next to the fences surrounding the habitat of the rare deer. 
Also known as Mesopotamian fallow deer, the rare animal has been listed as an endangered species under the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List since 1986. Up until the 1940s, the animal was thought to be extinct.
The operation is said to be aimed at clearing the way for the construction of a road for a nearby village, Mehr News Agency reported.
