The film crew is in Chon-Kemin to showcase the remarkable efforts of women farmers growing sea buckthorn as part of the UNEP’s “Vanishing Treasures” program
Their goal is to contribute to the conservation of the snow leopard🐾.
The sea buckthorn was planted last summer, and a harvest is expected next year. These women are working diligently to ensure a good yield, with 10% of the profits going to an environmental conservation fund.
This demonstration site with sea buckthorn serves as an example of an ecologically sustainable livelihood that does no harm to the environment, unlike some other human activities
