"Hrashq aygi" is another prison for wild animals

 A number of wild animals, namely bears, deer, birds, tiger and other animals are kept in the territory of "Hrashq aygi" restaurant complex, about which alarmed and gave photos the volunteer of “Civil Voice” NGO. Keeping wild animals in not free and partially not free areas again causes anxiety among a number of animal protection organizations and individuals. Wild animals keeping in not free conditions are often exhausted, damaged, psychologically depressed. There have been no less cases when types of red books also were held in not free conditions.

Therefore, in order to receive information on wild animals kept in the "Hrashq aygi" restaurant, Civil Voice and the Center of Bird Lovers NGOs applied to Mr. Armen Gevorgyan, Director of the "Hrashq Aygi" restaurant, but the latter did not respond to our official letter.

In order to find out the situation and get information on the above mentioned issue, Civil Voice and Center of Bird Lovers NGOs applied to The Head of Nature Protection and Subsoil Inspectorate Mr. Vigen Avetisyan.

Here you can find the official letters:

International Volunteer Day

The International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development (5 December), more commonly referred to as International Volunteer Day, is an international observance mandated by the UN General Assembly in 1985. It offers an opportunity for volunteer-involving organizations and individual volunteers to promote volunteerism, encourage governments to support volunteer efforts and recognize volunteer contributions to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals at local, national and international levels. International Volunteer Day is celebrated by many non-governmental organizations, civil society, and the private sector, among others.

Civil Voice NGO also has a volunteers team from 2015. With the efforts of volunteers of Civil Voice NGO a number of tree plantings, as well as social-ecological initiatives have been implemented.

Civil Voice NGO congratulates all volunteers on their holiday.

The information on historical-cultural monuments in the Dalma Gardens area was carefully hidden

Still in autumn 2018 the creation of the project on a children's, youth, family entertainment center in the area of 27 hectares adjacent to M. Melkonyan street by "Park Group" LLC was circulated. For receiving an information on the planned works Civil Voice NGO applied to the Former Mayor of Yerevan Mr. Taron Margaryan. Studying the documents provided by the municipality, we found that there was no information on historical-cultural monuments located in the Dalma Gardens. Then, on 19th of December, 2018, a public discussion on the preliminary evaluation request by Park Group LLC was held in which also participated the expert of Civil Voice NGO Silva Adamyan and the representative Naire Sahakyan. At that discussion, we provided comments and suggestions regarding the monuments in the Dalma Park area, although there was no such information in the Park Group LLC documents. However, on 12th of November this year, near the Dalma Mall the green mass was removed by heavy machinery in the Dalma Gardens. So on this issue we applied to the Head of Nature Protection and Subsoil Inspectorate Mr. Vigen Avetisyan. Studying the documents received from the Inspection Body, we once again noted that there was clearly no information on historical and cultural monuments in those documents.
