snowleopard.org – 40 local school kids had an unforgettable nature experience this past month in the heart of the newly designated Tost Nature Reserve in Mongolia. They spent 5 days each in an outdoor eco-camp, where they playfully learned about the plants and animals around them.
At first glance, Mongolia’s Tost Mountains are a harsh, barren landscape. But look closer and you discover an incredibly diverse and rich ecosystem, with dozens of plant species and animals of all sizes – and the majestic snow leopard as the region’s most iconic species. This spring, after years of hard work by our Mongolian team and other environment advocates, Mongolia’s parliament has declared this area a State Nature Reserve.
