Community-Focused Conservation in the Himalaya

We kicked off the Endangered Wolf Center’s 2021 Virtual Speaker Series with Brad Clement, founder of the Pangje Foundation.

Clement’s “love affair with the Himalaya” has inspired his work in snow leopard conservation and community education.

During this virtual event, Brad shares his story and his passion for the Himalaya wilderness. You’ll learn about the unique challenges facing conservationists in the rugged terrain of Nepal and how educating children is having far-reaching effects on snow leopards.

About the Speaker: Brad Clement
Brad’s passion for mountain wilderness has had a profound impact on every aspect of his life. He has spent nearly 20 years as a professional mountaineer and high altitude filmmaker; racking up a nice list of accomplishments along the way – including being one of a rare few to have reached the top of Mt. Everest from both the North and South side of the mountain. More than any other mountain region in the world, the Himalaya has had a deep effect on Brad. After more than 16 expeditions to the Himalaya, spanning over 15 years in time, Brad has developed a sincere passion and respect for the people and places of the Himalaya. Over the years, a desire to give back and support the mountain communities of Nepal has become an even larger passion than climbing. Combined with a life long love of wildlife, a strong interest in protecting our global environment, and a serendipitous meeting with Dr. Som Ale; Brad was inspired to create Pangje Foundation.
