WWF-Mongolia established a Memorandum of Understanding with Law Enforcement University of Mongolia (LEU) in 2017. In this framework, WWF-Mongolia announced a grant for environmental crime research work of postgraduate degree students in LEU. The research grant was awarded by a special commission established by the parties.
The grant-awarding ceremony was held on February 25, 2019, in the ceremony hall of LEU. The event was attended by over 70 guests including B.Chimeddorj, Conservation director of WWF-Mongolia, Colonel B.Bat-Erdene, Vice president of Research and Development Institute of Law Enforcement University of Mongolia and students.
Colonel B.Bat-Erdene said "This is a special event where our students are receiving a grant for the first time. I am confident that the students will conduct quality and effective research on environmental crimes and violations. The cooperation between the parties is crucial for reducing environmental crimes."
A granted research works included: “Research illegal wildlife trade on endangered animals” led my master’s student D.Ankhbayar, “Determining the current state of the crime, cause and prevention of poaching and illegal wildlife trade in Western Mongolia” led by PhD student T.Ochirbat, and “Determining harmful impacts on distribution and advertising of illegal wildlife and plants in social environment” led by PhD student G.Gantulga.
