Back to Mongolia
In 2004 and 2005 the Association Takh reintroduced 22 Przewalski’s horses from Le Villaret in southern France to the buffer zone of Khar Us Nuur National Park in the Khomyn Tal community of western Mongolia. In collaboration with local herders, we protect a 14,000 hectare enclosure for the wild horse population and record horse behaviour daily. Our goal is to ultimately remove the fence so that this wild horse population can roam completely free in the region. For this to occur, we need to minimize the risk of hybridisation with domestic horses and ensure suitable habitat for wild and domestic herbivores.
