The new home of 5 male red deer born in İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Natural Life Park will now be the Spil Mountain National Park. The endangered red deer will be released into the unique nature of the Spil Mountain National Park after being kept under observation in the adaptation area for a while.
Red deer, born in Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Sasalı Wildlife Park, will be released to nature in Spil Mountain National Park to keep the quality of life in the park at a certain level. 2 male red deer, aged between 10 and 5, including one herd leader, were kept under observation in the 2 square meter adaptation area in the Spil Mountain National Park, surrounded by wires, before being released into the wild. Under the supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Nature Conservation and National Parks 4th Regional Directorate veterinarians and Spil Mountain National Park personnel, the red deer, which have completed their adaptation to nature, will be released into nature. Thus, Spil Mountain, where red deer lived in the past, will return to its old days.
23 red deer left in the park
Saying that red deer are transported with care, İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Natural Life Park Manager Şahin Afşin said, “We send red deer, wild goats and gazelles from our species whose numbers have increased with new births in the Natural Life Park to other zoos. This year, we talked to National Parks. Within the framework of the program initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry to bring red deer back to Spil Mountain, we wanted to leave the red deer to their natural lives. At the moment, we have 23 red deer left in the Wildlife Park,” he said.
Red deer are tracked with photo traps

Thus, the red deer, which were known to exist on Spil Mountain many years ago, reunited with their former habitat. The endangered red deer will be tracked through 15 photo traps placed in the region.
