Nature Reserves in Jordan
In 1966, the organization that would later start Jordan's nature reserves, the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, was founded. RSCN's first efforts involved bringing back severely endangered species.
In 1973, RSCN, was given the right to issue hunting licenses, giving RSCN an upper hand in preventing extinction.
Later followed the starting of a number of nature reserves including:
Dana Nature Reserve
Azraq Wetland Reserve
Mujib Nature Reserve
Ajloun Forest Reserve
Dibbeen Forest Reserve
