Due to declining wildlife populations in Balkh province, the provincial environmental department has banned bird hunting to address these concerns.

Officials from the provincial environmental department have emphasized that this bird hunting ban follows government directives.

They have also stated that strict legal measures will be enforced against individuals found in bird hunting, reflecting the government’s commitment to safeguarding wildlife in Balkh province.

Hunters are urging the interim administration to implement a ban solely on hunting endangered birds, but Environmental Protection Department officials remain steadfast in prohibiting all bird hunting without exception.

Mohammad Mohammadi, the head of Balkh’s environmental protection department, has voiced concerns over declining bird populations and declared a complete ban on hunting any bird or wild animal in the province.

Bird hunting has been banned in Afghanistan’s Balkh province, with the establishment of a bird sanctuary for protection and breeding.

The department has highlighted a critical situation, warning that approximately 108 species of birds and wild animals in Afghanistan are at risk of extinction if hunting continues unchecked.
