Dorjay Stanzin

Dorjay “eagle-eyes” Stanzin is probably the world’s top snow leopard spotter. Hailing from the small village of Skiu in Hemis National Park, Dorjay has been working with snow leopards and conservation since 1990. Between 1992 and 1997 he helped start a non-profit for snow leopard conservation and worked on creating a network of community based home-stays in the famous Markha Valley in Hemis National Park.

Dorjay has a tremendous knowledge of Himalayan and Central Asian wildlife and has long assisted the Wildlife Department in rescuing injured snow leopards, tracking snow leopards, wolves, and lynx and has worked with several major filming expeditions to the region.
