When not on ENB duty, Tanya Rosen is the Snow Leopard Programme Coordinator in Tajikistan for PANTHERA, a US NGO dedicated to the conservation of wild cats. She lives in Khorog, close to the border with Afghanistan, and hopes to make a positive difference for the conservation of snow leopards and their prey, the markhor and argali sheep. Her fearless daughter Bianca joins her often in research and outreach activities. Prior to her move to Central Asia, she lived and worked in Europe and the US (New York and Montana), where after many years as an international lawyer, she studied brown bears and wolves and worked on human-carnivore conflicts. Tanya holds degrees in science and international law from Milano, Yale, Harvard and Bard.
