In the first of its kind, the prestigious award for the rangers, coordinated by IUCN WCPA, received over 130 nominations from 43 countries including Bhutan.
Ten rangers and ranger teams were conferred with the International Ranger Award and 19 others as highly recommended. Its a pride for Bhutanese rangers to have our own Norbu Yangdon, being listed amongst the highly recommended rangers in this intense competition. Norbu bagged this special recognition based on her dedicated and selfless leadership in conservation and for her personal commitment towards protecting and conserving the highly fragile and threatened biodiversity in the far east Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary
“I feel honoured and deeply humbled for being recognised as one of the highly recommended rangers.” Norbu expressed. “Its a great source of motivation for me to work harder in safeguarding our sacred natural resources, my personal commitment towards serving tsa-wa sum. I am very grateful to my chief for sending the nomination. ”
NCD family congratulates Norbu for her recognition.
