Nyam-Ochir Duujii

Four years ago, on September 9, I brought together 52 community members to stand against the Ider Murun mining company. Even though we succeeded, I knew it was not over. When the Ulaan Taiga Protected Areas Administration was established, I decided to become a ranger. I patrol 37,000 hectares [92 thousand acres] of the protected area and within a year, we decreased number of poaching dramatically and all 7 cases were caught.
