Ecotourism in Azerbaijan

I’m sure everyone knows where Azerbaijan is, but for the few out there who don’t it’s located just north of Iran along the coast of the Caspian Sea.  Of course I’m kidding.  The first I’ve heard about this country was after reading about it from BirdLife International.

This country is making a great effort to increase visitors through ecotourism.  The nation has 52 Important Bird Areas (IBAs) in their tourism plan.  Not only that but the country has the Azerbaijan Ornithological Society, but unfortunately their English version does not work.  It is excellent to see places all over the world putting in an effort to promote ecotourism and conservation!
