I have launched National Bird Monitoring and National Butterfly Monitoring in Armenia. I'm publishing 8-12 scientific papers per annum in international peer-reviewed journals. I have initiated improvement of Armenian Environmental Legislation and its linkage to the International Conventions and Agreements.

My main research interest is study of habitat preferences of rare and threatened species of birds and butterflies and development of win-win models, where human business and the wild habitats can successfully co-exist.

Karen, welcome to WildHub. Just curious to know if the improvement to the Armenian Environmental legislation has been implemented?

Some of the amendments are submitted to the Parliament, some are at the last stage of development.
