Abstract

Iran is a country with a rich diversity and unique biodiversity. But the importance of protecting biodiversity, both in terms of animal life and plant life, is not well understood and considered by governments and organizations that are involved with it, as it is worthwhile. For this reason, the destruction process has begun in the distant past and over the past decades, and its biodiversity has been severely endangered. It should be noted that the quaternary areas (National Park, Protected Areas, National Natural Reserve, and Wildlife Refuge) are considered among the most valuable natural heritage of the country, according to accepted standards among all nations of the world. In recent decades, the reflection of the perceived suspicion of the responsible authorities about the irreparable and multi-faceted values of these regions has provoked a lot of disregard for their protection and even jeopardized their existence and survival. Studies show that the protected patterns, along with the intensification of the destruction process throughout the country, and the weakness of the environmental protection agency in the management, control and monitoring of destructive human activities, on the other hand, have greatly changed, and as a result of significant features and values, In recent decades, they have gradually lost their indissoluble assets and have gradually moved away from their desirable past. According to the research, there are certain rules and criteria for protecting protected areas in international and domestic law, and most of the legal and national standards for protecting areas are in line with international standards. However, there is also a need for review, because increasing compliance with legal rules and national obligations with international rules and regulations will make it more effective to protected areas. In this descriptive-analytical study, we will try to review and revise the laws and regulations of protected areas according to international conventions and obligations.
