Poachers to Rangers in the Masjed Mountain

A group of locally employed rangers patrol the Masjed protected area in central Iran to reduce poaching. These rangers are unarmed and used to be poachers themselves. Their presence has led to increases in a number of species including wild goats and sheep.
