The government is seeking to propose legislation before the end of the current calendar year (March 2015) to prohibit hunting in the country, IRNA quoted Ahmad Ali Keykha, deputy director at the Department of Environment (DoE) as saying.

Excessive hunting in recent years has caused grave harm to endangered species, he said.

The DoE has conducted many studies in the field of wildlife and concluded that a 5-year ‘No Hunting’ ban should be declared to conserve the existing fauna in the country.
