In search of the mouflon in the Paphos forest
Follow us into the vast forest areas of Troodos and Paphos while exploring the wildlife and the shelter of the beautiful and impressive moufflons. The moufflon is known to be a unique subspecies of sheep-goat worldwide and the largest native ground (χερσαίο) mammal that characterizes Cyprus fauna. It was considered an endangered species and thus it is included in the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) red list since 1978. However, since 1990 it is considered as Vulnerable species and under protection by the CITES, the international treaty for the protection of rare species.
In this documentary, we explore moufflon’s ecology, their biology, nutrition, social space, safety and preservation.
