ARMAVIR, Armenia – With the aim of raising awareness about the Armenian cochineal or Vordan Karmir, a critically endangered scale insect indigenous to the Ararat Plain and famous for the red dye derived from it historically.
The project was one of the 10 winners of the Environmental Education Micro Project Competition.
The AUA Acopian Center for the Environment (AUA ACE), a research center at the American University of Armenia, promotes the protection and restoration of the natural environment through research, education, and community outreach.
About AUAThe American University of Armenia (AUA) is a private, independent university located in Yerevan, Armenia. Fascinated by big cats? Wild Cats: Cougars, Bobcat and Lynx is a neat find and a great resource for those looking for some straightforward information on the life and times of the North American big cats.
Wild Cats covers the habits and movements of cougars, bobcat and lynx, including a lot of information about their young.
The book features Wildcat Facts on each page, which provide additional knowledge about these sometimes maligned animals, including the fact that they rarely attack humans (unless sick or defending their kittens). The end of the book also showcases some of the wildcats around the world, as well as a North American wildcat glossary and guide to tracks. Vegbooks is a resource for parents and teachers who want to support the vegan and vegetarian kids in their lives.

As well as introductory divers, Sunlover Reef Cruises also caters to the needs of certified divers who have previously gained a recognised SCUBA Diving qualification. The “Essence of the Armenian Cochineal” project led by Galust Nanyan, engaged over 190 students throughout five communities of Armavir region, including Jrarat, Argavand, Eraskhahun, Eghegnut, and Arazap.
Seminars included presentations and thematic film screenings to provide students with a deeper knowledge about the Armenian cochineal. The winning projects represent the best from a pool of 130 applications from across the country. The aim of the Norwegian grant was to develop environmental education capacities in Armenia, including the establishment and strengthening of the Environmental Education Network (EEN), a learning partnership between civil society, educational institutions, government, and international organizations.
AUA ACE’s focus areas include sustainable natural resource management, biodiversity and conservation, greening the built environment, clean energy, and energy efficiency, as well as information technology and the environment. There is also a very important section of the book which touches on the fact that humans have encroached into wildcat habitat in a significant way and some of the repercussions around this.


We’re looking forward to checking out some more titles from the publisher, Kids Can Press, which has an entire series on wildlife.
We have a range of great locations guaranteed to thrill and excite even the most experienced of divers, from City Hall with its swim-through caves and large pelagic fish, through to Scary Point where the currents have encouraged the most diverse array of invertebrates to congregate.
In addition, the students toured the national reserve of the Araratian cochineal, the State Museum of Nature of Armenia, the Geological Museum of Armenia, and the Museum of Zoology of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia. Through teaching, research, and public service, AUA serves Armenia and the region by supplying high-quality, graduate and undergraduate education, encouraging civic engagement, and promoting democratic values. Depending on how sensitive your audiences are, you may want to prime them when it comes to the depiction of the lynx catching the snowshoe hare. This is especially significant because a rising number of western communities are finding themselves unwilling hosts to cougars, a situation often ending with the cougars being killed.
Additionally, in several schools, informative posters and booklets were developed and distributed. A selection team, comprising EEN members reviewed and made the final decisions on the competition’s winners.
