The organization of specially protected natural areas is considered to be the most optimal choice for the protection of the whole natural landscape and its dynamic components like vegetation and wildlife. Although, the strict regime was established by our state in specially protected natural areas of Azerbaijan, as a result of Armenia's near-30-year military aggression, rare and unique natural monuments of a number of reserves and sanctuaries were looted in Karabakh. At present, the main purpose of monitoring in these areas is to calculate the damage and develop practical measures for the restoration of the area.
