Nalbandian: Racism and racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance grossly violate human dignity and give rise to tensions within and between societies. That is why the fight against them became one of the main priorities of our chairmanship.

The bear cub saved by WWF - Armenia settles in the Shikahogh reserve.
The bear cub was found in 2012. The WWF Armenian Office with the support of its German colleagues built a temporary shelter for the animal and hired a vet. Nursing the bear cub for 8 months, the specialists let it free in July 2013 attaching a radio neck collar to its neck.
Talking to ArmInfo, Head of WWF- Armenia Karen Manvelyan said the bear cub called Masha spent the autumn in the Shikahogh reserve and hibernated in December. In March-April, environmentalists will be tracking the bear throughout the reserve.
Earlier Manvelyan said that the data received from the radio neck collar could be used in a research.
