Saving a species living in a landscape of tears

The Persian leopard is a rare subspecies of Panthera pardus living across warzones and areas of civil unrest in the Middle East. Conserving this big cat in a troubled geographic region comes with a high degree of risk, uncertainty and challenge. Here, Tatjana Rosen discusses the groundbreaking work being done to help protect this subspecies from extinction – and the heroes who have put their own lives on the line to do so.

This talk was brought to you by Be in the Change’s Global Huddle. During the first Global Huddle, an online festival of ideas and stories, we invited a dozen changemakers from across the globe to share with us their journeys of how they helped to make a positive difference in society.

Tatjana Rosen is the UNEP Vanishing Treasures Technical Adviser for Kyrgystan and Lead of Team Bars Turkmenistan. You can connect with her on Twitter here.
