From Mongolia to Idaho
In October 2005, Mongolian conservationist Gongor Gansukh traveled to Idaho as part of a Nature Conservancy exchange program. For ten days, Gansukh studied conservation planning, spent time afield with staff and partners, rode the range with cowboys and saw the similarities and differences between Idaho and Mongolia.
Mongolian conservationists also visited the Arizona and Colorado chapters.
The exchange programs were designed to help Mongolian conservationists protect their grasslands and native wildlife, including snow leopard, argali sheep, elk, gazelle and ibex.
