Join the DC Audubon Society and Machik* on December 13 th for a unique opportunity in a small group setting to engage with Tashi Sangpo, a Tibetan Buddhist monk and the current Global Innovation Fellow at Machik, during his brief visit to Washington, DC. Guests will hear a presentation from Tashi Sangpo about conservation efforts in Tibet and have an opportunity to exchange ideas about bird conservation and community outreach strategies.
Tashi Sangpo works to inform and educate local people on the Tibetan plateau of the threats faced by rare bird species, such as the Tibetan bunting (Emberiza koslowi), one of the most under-documented birds in the world. In 2007, he founded the Nyanpo Yurtse Environment Protection Association, a group dedicated to conservation and education for the public. He is passionate about reaching the next generation to understand and care for the environment, and educates others through his art, children’s books and conservation films.
