Our activities

Our organization works in the South and South-east Gobi since 2008, in partnership with protected areas and the local community of our study area. 

Research

Our scientific team conduct research on the ecology of the Mongolian khulan, on other Gobi wildlife and intra and interspecific interactions, and other topics of interest. 

We also create partnership with other research teams on several aspects on biodiversity and on ecology of the Mongolian khulan and other Gobi wildlife.

Community-based conservation

 

We involve Mongolian locals (herders, Buddhist monks, protected areas rangers …) as Citizen scientists and as guardians of the Gobi wildlife. We provide them with scientific training and support as they live in the Gobi Desert all year round and directly depend on a healthy ecosystem to survive. 

We believe that they can also provide an invaluable contribution to the long-term success of wildlife and the Gobi ecosystem protection.

Capacity building for park rangers

 

 

As part of our conservation program, in 2012 we started training park rangers working in the south Gobi protected areas. The first step of our training was to train the rangers to use camera traps in order to develop with them a research program based on camera trapping. 

 

During the period of 2020-2021 we are planning to develop this training program in order to train additional protected areas' rangers to use camera traps, as well as to provide them with training about Ecology, biodiversity conservation and research methods.

Tourism 

 

We organize - in partnership with locally based travel agencies - wildlife observation and Citizen science expeditions in our study areas. 

 

These expeditions are organized in order to provide support to the families we work with and to provide support to our research and conservation activities as well.

Environmental education 

 

 

In order to raise local and international awareness to environment protection, our team created different educational resources (such as a bilingual children's book) and also conduct educational conservation activities in the Gobi desert.
