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!
