Tegshbuyant Damba

I graduated from the National University of Mongolia with a degree in Geography and Geology in 2012 and started working as a ranger at Khar Us Lake National Park in 2014. My parents raised me to respect and worship nature. I patrol 120 thousand hectares (over 300 000 acres) of the protected area –  Jargalant Khairkhan (Mountain) and Bumbat Khairkhan (Mountain) and parts of Khar and Dörgön Lakes.  The mountains are home to snow leopard, argali sheep, ibex, and various rare herbs. I love what I do as I am contributing to the preservation of one of the most beautiful places on earth.
