BENEFITING: TRIBUTARY FUND

THE STORY:

Dedicated to poaching patrol, research and community education

TTF has always been dedicated to approaching conservation through the lens of local culture. When we learned that the people of northern Mongolia view the taimen (a threatened fish in Mongolia) as sacred, we knew the Eg and Uur Rivers were the perfect wellspring to nourish our mission, blending traditional values with wildlife and habitat protection. Over the years we have worked to safeguard the taimen fishery, invest in the local communities, and engage anglers in our efforts. TTF partners have produced a body of peer-reviewed taimen research, resulting in the Mongolian government placing tighter restrictions on taimen fishing. The local people have also called for limits on gold mining and a halt to poaching. TTF has provided support for taimen research, education materials, cameras, motorcycles and poaching patrols.
