The leader of the Foundation for the Preservation and Protection of the Przewalski’s Horse, during the 20th anniversary event of reintroduction of wild horses in Khustai Mountains, made the following statement:
“Forty years ago, I saw the Takhi for the first time when I visited a zoo with my husband on my honeymoon. At the time, the animal was an endangered species, and only about 270 Takhi remained worldwide. This sad news about the extinction of the Takhi in Mongolia made me devastated. Now the number of Takhi has reached 270 in Mongolia alone. I am really proud of myself and our colleagues for the work we have done to breed this animal.”
