Iran's Bamou National Park

Bamou National Park ,located in northern part of Fars province, is home to many species of plants and animals.

Iran (IMNA) – Bamou National Park, five kilometers away from Shiraz, is divided into two parts due the Shiraz-Isfahan road passing through. Following the increase in population and expansion of Shiraz city, the area of the park gradually reduced and turned into a protected zone in 1967, and a few years later it changed into a national park.

Today, the national park has an area of more than 40,000 hectares and includes three mountain ranges extended from the east to the west. Bamou peak has the height of 2700 meters that you can see it easily from the city of Shiraz.

It should be noted that the area encompasses 32 mammal species, 19 creeper species, 91 bird species, and 3 amphibian species. Flamingo, wild duck, pelican, vulture and tortoise find it a suitable habitat. Among the bird species, 18 of them are protected, while 6 are in danger of extinction. You can also see many gazelles, rams, and ewes in this area.

In addition, the decent weather has led to the creation of diverse vegetation in Bamou National Park in early spring such as corn poppy, common primrose, and tulip flowers.  There are more than 300 species of plants in Bamou National Park. It should be noted that most of these plants have medicinal values.
