My name is Tserennadmid (Nadia) Mijiddorj. I’m from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Currently I’m studying at Wildlife Institute of India to earn a MSc degree. I work with the Snow Leopard Conservation Fund in Mongolia. We work towards the conservation of the endangered snow leopard and its ecosystem in Mongolia since 2000 with the support of the Snow Leopard Trust. SLCF runs to implement scientific and community based conservation programs in Western and Southern Mongolia. So far, we are working on Snow Leopard Enterprises (handicraft project), snow leopard research and livestock insurance program.

My research interests include both ecological and social dimensions of wildland ecosystems, focusing primarily on carnivore conflict and rangelands. Major themes are community-based and collaborative natural resource management; traditional and local ecological knowledge; pastoralism and pastoral development and their effects on wildlife and their ecosystems.
