- wildlife observation and citizen science applied to conservation -

Our organization has been running research and conservation activities in Mongolia since 2008, to enhance protection of the threatened Mongolian khulan (Equus hemionus hemionus), Gobi wildlife and the Gobi Desert ecosystem.


By joining one of our wildlife tours in Mongolia you will travel with our team of specialists to different regions of Mongolia, including the Gobi Desert, following the tracks of Mongolian khulans/wild asses and other wildlife.


You will not only observe and photograph wildlife - like many travel agencies could offer you to do - but you will travel along with wildlife biologists and will take part to some of our research program's and conservation activities for an experience of a lifetime and a positive impact on local wildlife and biodiversity conservation. 


What is specific and unique about our wildlife tours?



--> they are led by our organization's biologists/conservationists or local wildlife biologists or tourist guides working with us. Tourist guides working with us and leading some of our conservation tours have been trained by our scientific team;   


--> they all contribute to protection of endangered Gobi wildlife and their habitat as you will help our team in data collection applied to wildlife and biodiversity conservation (citizen science); 


--> some of the proceeds will go to our Conservation Fund that will financially support our research and conservation program, and to our Community Fund to bring support to local communities of our project's areas; 


--> they support the local community of our study area by providing additional income to some members of the local community working with us as "wildlife and culture guides" and as local hosts; 


--> they support other conservation projects as we will stop to different national parks and reserves on the way to our study area; 


--> We are currently the only organization offering wildlife observation and citizen science tours for wildlife conservation in the Gobi Desert, helping enhance protection of the Mongolian khulan, Gobi wildlife and the Gobi Desert ecosystem.



By travelling with us you will have a unique opportunity to travel to some remote places of Mongolia to see unique and endangered wildlife, to learn about their ecology and threats affecting their survival, and you will also have a direct and positive impact on protection of Gobi wildlife and the Gobi Desert ecosystem!
