Life is difficult on the roof of the world, but Tibetan communities are learning new skills to integrate nature conservation with sustainable livelihoods. More than 89,000 people in 320 villages live within the boundaries of the Qomolangma (Everest) National Nature Preserve, a protected area the size of Massachusetts. To enable local people to benefit from nature conservation, the "Pendeba Program," trains village volunteers known as Pendebas in the practical skills of environmental protection, primary health care, and income generation.
This video features the stunning diversity of the Tibetan plateau, with rare wildlife footage by Chinese videographer Qi Yun, and tells the story of the local people who are the real conservation heroes and stewards of the land.
