Southern Anatolian montane conifer and deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

If you climb through the hills and valleys of the Southern Anatolian Montane Conifer and Deciduous Forests and you listen carefully, you may hear the shriek of golden eagles, the slither of smooth snakes, and maybe even the cry of a jackal! More and more people are coming to this region to hike, trek, and enjoy its natural wonders. So conservationists are working hard to make sure the visitors themselves don't harm its unique habitats and species.
