The Gobi bear food drops continue in uncertain times

April 8th, 2020

MongoliAid is happy to report that not all important things have come to a halt. Late March and early April our partner organization in Mongolia – MAMA NGO – delivered essential extra food to Gobi bear feeding bins across the eastern ranges of the GGSPA Part A.

The Tsagaan Bogd ranges were still cold and windy but there were many sightings of ibex, argali and khulan. Unfortunately no bear sightings but that was to be expected.

Three new feeding bins were deployed, including one at a new site called Ishgen Tolgoi.

We thank MAMA director Tumenjargal for co-ordinating this effort and by working with GGSPA rangers, particularly Babuu from Ekhiin Gol village. Here are some photos, including a photo of the new bin at Ishgen Tolgoi standing behind the field team.

The next supplemental food drop will be in May.

Some good news in difficult times …

It has been a difficult start to the year, and indeed a difficult day during a challenging week, but we are pleased to announce that today we sent funds to finance the next supplemental food drop for the Gobi bears!

MongoliAid is once again very proud and excited to announce the successful delivery of 1000kg of supplemental food for the Gobi bears living around the Segs Tsagaan Bogd region of the GGSPA ‘A’. Together with Tumenjargal and other volunteers from the MAMA NGO we visited 7 sites in late September to help fatten up the bears before the fast approaching hibernation period begins. We enjoyed fine weather though we lost a few tyres along the way. It’s not an easy place to reach, but we had a very satisfying experience. Large Gobi animals were few and far between but evidence of continued Gobi bear activity was clear at each site, and the water holes looked to be doing well (pardon the pun).

The latest photos from the Gobi!

We were very happy to receive these photos from our NGO partner organization MAMA. MAMA Director Tumenjargal Nambar reported that a juvenile female bear was trapped and fixed with a radio collar at Khutul Us spring late April, whilst he and his colleagues delivered food across the eastern ranges. This was the second MongoliAid-sponsored Gobi bear food drop for the year. Enjoy these cool pics!
