Our programs promote the sustainability
of Mongolia's grassland ecosystems
MBDP's mission supports traditional nomadic herding
on the Mongolian Steppe
Bankhar Pups are born into MBDP facilities in
Mongolia each spring
We breed, train and place Bankhar with qualified
herder host families.
Bankhar are a unique landrace of livestock protection dogs native to the Mongolian Steppe. Bankhar dogs have traditionally performed a critical role – mediating between endangered predator species such as snow leopards and Mongolian herding families as they work to maintain their traditional lifestyles. We breed, train and place Bankhar with qualified herder host families.
