Mongolia Overview

Ask Taimen Fund Director Charlie Conn what Mongolia is about. He’ll say it’s a documentary about conservation of the Taimen (Hucho Hucho Taimen) in Mongolia. Protecting of the world’s largest salmonid species is one of several driving layers to this film. But Mongolia is also an autopsy on what happens when passionate people join to protect and manage a resource before ecosystems are subject to the impact of first world development.

Modern human development often leaves conservationists working to reverse the impact after species are threatened. This film explores a proactive conservation race during a time of development in Mongolia that is leaving wilderness and species in the balance. The work shown in this film to protect the Taimen may be a model for other countries to follow.

This film is available on the FishTails DVD.
