TAKHI WILD HORSES NUMBERS REACH 200

Blog | published: 2018-04-17

In June, 1992, the National Commission for the Reintroduction of Wild Horse with the support of the Christian Oswald Foundation successfully brought the first five Przewalski’s wild horses from Europe- Holland to Takhiin Tal, Gobi Altai province. National Commission chose 2 places for re-introduction of wild horses: Takhiin Tal -1800 km in the west of Ulaanbaatar and second one is Khustain Nuruu national park in 50 km west of Ulaanbaatar city.  

In April of 2018  Przewalski's wild horses inhabiting in Takhiin Tal reached 200. The Przewalski’s wild horses in Takhiin Tal or part B of the Great Gobi Strictly Protected Area SPA have overcome frigid cold winter without any loss and fifty mares are expected to deliver off-spring this spring. In Khustain Nuruu National park’s wild horses’ population reaches 315. Khustain Nuruu National park is one of the main touristy places and biological research center, which is open for Mongolian and international biological experts.  

Globally endangered Wild Bactrian Camel, Gobi Bear, Takhi or Wild Horse, Khulan or Wild Ass, and Saiga Antelope, listed as vulnerable Goitered Gazelle are symbols of well-being and health of Gobi ecosystems. To protect the Gobi ecosystems, a home to these species (those are being called, herein, as “Great Gobi 6” or GG6), build partnership platform and empower collaborative efforts of governmental and non-governmental organizations and the public (local communities) into the conservation activities, an event “Great Gobi 6” was organized in September 2016 under the campaign initiated by the WWF Mongolia (MPO). A venue of the event was the “TAKHIIN TAL” (“Steppe of Takhi”), which is historically proclaimed as the land of last traces of wild horse (Takhi), or a vacant and unpopulated area of 120 km in radius included in the areas of Great Gobi Strictly Protected Area part “B”.  

We often hear of concerns such as declining populations of Wild Bactrian camel, Wild Ass, Gobi bear, Takhi Horse, Saiga Antelope, and Goitered Gazelle from day to day and they have become one of the target species in the region. However, no actual progress and achievements are seen in practice except Wild Horses Project.  

Foundation for Gobi Bear Conservation, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), the Mongolian National Broadcasting, the Association for Gobi Khulan Conservation, “Khomiin Taliin Takhi” NGO, the National University of Mongolia (NUM), the Programme “Steppe Forward” of Zoological Soceity of London, Hustai National Park, the Centre for Re-Introduction of Takhi in Takhi Steppe, the Association for Takhi Conservation (France), the Great Gobi Strictly Protected Area’s parts “A” and “B” are working in Gobi Altai Province to protect and increase the numbers of wild animals herds.  

“TAKHIIN TAL APPEAL” It is noted that the Gobi of Mongolia is a home of charismatic wild species namely, Wild Bactrian Camel, Gobi Bear, Takhi or Wild Horse, Khulan or Wild Ass, and Saiga Antelope, and Goitered Gazelle. It is already recognized that these wild species are globally endangered or vulnerable and key representatives of Gobi ecosystems. So now Mongols are considering that distribution areas of these species are increasingly shrinking, highlighting the importance of collaborative approaches in conservation of these species, being aware of our duties to conserve the planet.
