A brown bear has been caught on camera in the Arasbaran protected area, also known as Ghareh Dagh, in northwestern Iran bordering the Azerbaijan Republic.

The mammals are on the list of protected species of Iran’s Environmental Protection Department.

There is a small number of bears in the few protected areas across Iran while the animals are facing the threat of extinction.

Environmental activists have called on Nowruz travelers not to take detours in protected areas in order not to face or hurt the endangered species.

The animals usually get out of their habitats to forage for food.
