About Junior Ranger Program
One of leading aims at the MEC in this work is to inspire Mongolian youth to love and protect nature, while helping them learn about the place where they live. With this goal in mind, the MEC has started a “Junior Ranger” program at secondary schools of Hatgal village, with the first Junior Rangers graduating in May, 2014. Some 15 students were selected from 5th and 6th grades to join in this program at its initiation.
