One of the basic keys in the conservation and management principle of protected region especially national parks is identifying the ecological resources of the region. Undoubtedly in each ecosystem, there are regions which are more significant in terms of riches species and the presence of valuable and important species (conservative sensitive site) has favorable conditions than the other regions, these regions are significant in terms of conservation strategies and ecotourism management. Therefore, identifying this sensitive conservative site could have new evaluation in the management of conservative regions. The aim of this research was presenting solutions for biodiversity strategic managements, by considering sensitive conservative site in Kolah Ghazi National Park. During one-year regular monitoring of the Kolah Ghazi National Park, in Isfahan, diversity and abundance of fauna and flora of the region in terms of species richness with their exact geographical position were recorded by direct observation. Available documentary data and regional profiles were used to complete data. For evaluating data random pallet m2400 methods and also the distance from the nearest neighbor were used. By overlaying ecological m aps by using GIS software, a conservation map was prepared in which three conservation levels (high, medium and low protection) were considered for the region. The highest density of species is on the spot which is marked on the map as high conservation. In the following, suitable management strategy for each season, according to three categories of conservation of the lo, medium and high will be provided.
