An animal hospital and emergency care center recently opened in Roudsar County in the northern province of Gilan, a deputy for technical affairs at the Department of Environment's provincial office said. Based on a recent report by DOE's Public Relations Office, the emergency center is the first project of its kind implemented in the country to help injured wild animals.  "The center is equipped with aquariums for aquatic animals, separate cages for carnivorous and non-carnivorous species, providing treatment and healthcare services for different species," Mansour Sarbazi added. The first phase of the project was inaugurated with a budget of 150 million rials ($4000) to mark the "Environment Week" (June 6-13). Sarbazi noted that more equipment would be supplied to the center during the second phase, but did not elaborate.
