The latest photos from the Gobi!

May 9th, 2019

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!

Photos from the first Gobi Bear food drop for 2019 have arrived!

The Space Exhibition 4 Gobi Bears is now open for business!

April 6th, 2019

Today MongoliAid launched the world’s first Space Exhibition 4 Gobi Bears. Our event is a quirky way to look back at the space race between the Soviet Union and the USSR as they forged a political and technological battle to be the first nation to place human boot prints on the Moon.

At the same time we are raising awareness and funds to further the cause of Gobi Bear conservation. Our Exhibition is running from 6 April to 22 April at DFO Cairns, from 10am to 4pm each day, excluding Good Friday. We have exhibition programs, Gobi Bear badges, books and knitted bears for sale. Please come along and say hello to Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and company.

After a successful preview event before Christmas last year, MongoliAid is joining forces with the DFO in Cairns to present the world’s first space exhibition for Gobi bears this Easter school holidays! The exhibition will run from Saturday 6 April through to Monday 22 April. Attendees will experience a selection of historical newspapers, magazines and memorabilia that showcase the race to the Moon between the USA and USSR during the 1950s and 1960s.

The exhibition, much like the original space race itself, will culminate with exhibits that describe and celebrate the Moon landing in July 1969. The exhibition will be free to visit and attendees will have an opportunity to show their support for Gobi bear conservation efforts in Mongolia by purchasing a Gobi bear badge and other merchandise.

The first exhibition for Gobi bears in Australia was launched last night in Cairns

One small step for man, One giant leap for Gobi bearsĀ 

Last night MongoliAid hosted the world’s first space exhibition for Gobi bears! It was a great night with guests travelling through time to gaze upon rare artifacts that documented the space race from the end of World War 2 to the successful Apollo 11 lunar mission. The sounds of the 60s floated across the room at Cominos House whilst gingerbread Gobi bears, knitted Gobi bears and books about rare Gobi mammals were available for purchase. We raised nearly $1000 in what was an embryonic experimental exhibition experience! Thank you to all MongoliAid supporters and friends who made the night possible. Your sweat and good vibes were and are greatly appreciated.

A Coming Attraction that will be out of this world!
