Project Description
Akhuryan River flows from Lake Arpi located in the north-west of Shirak region. In 1950 due to draining of the wetland, the riverbed was changed and transformed into a canal in the upper stream. Although the old riverbed has lost its basic water flow, still rich biodiversity typical for this region (Nuphar lutea(L.) Smith), gray crane (Grus grus), etc) is maintained. The old riverbed of Akhuryan river is located on Ashotsk plateau, at the altitude of about 2010 m above sea level. It has a depth of about 1.5 m where a week water stream is preserved. During the year water level fluctuations are 40-50 cm depending on precipitations and level of underground waters, which has a negative impact on the sustainability of ecosystems. The adjacent community lands (Ardenis, Alvar and Aghvorik) are included in Lake Arpi National Park area. The project objective is restoration of wetlands of the old riverbed of Akhuryan river and in-situ conservation of biodiversity through ecosystem rehabilitation approach. The project implementation will promote conservation of endangered important biodiversity species in Armenia. The project goals: 1. Ensure conservation of populations and natural habitats of endangered species through involvement of local communities, 2. Organize hydro-technical activities directed to the improvement of the natural ecosystem of Akhuryan river old bed, 3. Organize monitoring of endangered species and their habitats jointly with Lake Arpi National Park and communities.
