A peaceful forage of a group of deer in central-western Georgia's Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park can be seen in a video captured by hidden camera, showing the well-being of the animals in the area where their numbers have doubled over the last five years.

Released on social media by the Agency of Protected Areas on Wednesday, the footage shows no less than five deer on a hillside in the park.

The area of the Borjomi-Kharagauli park was recently expanded from around 60,000 hectares to over 100,000 hectares, encompassing more space in the location known for its diversity of flora and fauna.


Red deer, chamois, roe deer, brown bear, wolf and lynx are found in the expanded space where 57 percent of the park territory is covered with forests.

In December, over 800 red deer were observed in the park. In total, 64 species of mammals are recorded in the area, 11 of them native to the Caucasus, and eight included in the Red List of Georgia.

The park is recognised as part of the European Network of Protected Areas.
