Mongolian Bankhar Dog Project

Mongolian Bankhar Dog Project is a USA 501(c)3 non-profit that researches, breeds, and trains Mongolian Bankhar livestock protection dogs and places these working dogs in homes of nomadic herding families on the Mongolian steppe. Here, the Bankhar perform their traditional role of protecting livestock herds (sheep, goat, horse, camel, yak) against large carnivorous predators including snow leopards, wolves, brown bears, foxes and eagles, in an effort to end human-carnivore conflict in this region. Equally as important is helping to protect the endangered snow leopard and the local Mongolian wolf populations! 

We are running an Indiegogo campaign to crowd-fund our operating expenses for 2016-17. Your support for our project is vital. We can’t continue our programs without raising these funds – and we are looking to our community to join us on this amazing adventure. We are looking to the people who care about us, our dogs, and the possibility of improving the environment, despite bleak predictions about almost every facet of environmental degradation in Mongolia.
