Conservation Hero

Tsering Angmo is an incredible Ladakhi woman. Acting as the education coordinator of the Conservancy’s Ladakh Education program, she has made great strides for snow leopard conservation in India. Acting as one of the few women leaders in her area of work, this nature guide from Rumbak village shares her knowledge of wild flora and fauna of Ladakh with the Spiti people. Along with Sujatha Padmanabhan of Kalpavriksh, Ms. Angmo initiated the cross-boundary education program that introduced Ri Gyancha, a biodiversity resource kit for educators in Ladakh. Angmo’s gift of connecting with students has shone through her deep knowledge of the area that she was raised in.

“Angmo is keen to share what she knows, and also keen to learn. She is a valuable asset to not only the work in Ladakh, but to the dissemination of the education programme to a wider audience.” -Sujatha

Angmo is an essential asset to snow leopard conservation in India and an inspiration to all of us!

Meet Sergei Spitsyn, endangered animal expert from Siberia. He is known all over Siberia as the go-to man for camera-trapping and knowledge surrounding the animals that live in the high mountains and tundra of this harsh landscape. He knows the Altai Mountains like the back of his hand, and with the help of his beautiful dog, Eric, he can find evidence of the snow leopards and their prey at great speeds.

Spitsyn partners with the Conservancy and WWF to provide vital knowledge for snow leopard conservation.
