Nurata nature reserve

Nuratinsky [zapovednik] (approximately 200 km2) was formed in 1975 in Djizak Region in a mountain/savanna ecosystem characteristic because of its nut tree forest. The reserve accommodates wolf, Severtsov's urial, wild boar, and several species of raptors. In 1991, Nuratinsky lost 4000 ha to logging and is presently compromised by a village, Madjerum, situated in its core. The zapovednik contains petroglyphs and the highest point in the Nuratau Mountains, Khayatbashy (2000+ meters).
