Partners of the ITG

Support through Financial Means, Material and Personal Dedication

Many companies, institutions and individuals have contributed to the success with financial means, material and personal commitment.
Without the dedication of the ITG members, the scientists, the partner organisations and the sponsors in Mongolia, Europe and the USA such a project would never have been possible.

Prague Zoo

The Prague Zoo is a member of the ITG and has participated the project very actively during the last few years. It played a crucial role in the survival and re-introduction of the Przwalski's Horse during several decades. According to its historical role Prague Zoo plays a very active role again since 2011 in the fields of population management and socio-economics.

European Endangered Species Program (EEP)

Within the scope of the EEP, endangered species are bred in zoos in order to sustain their population on a long-term basis and to reintroduce them, if possible, into suitable habitats. Over 120 species are in those programmes having data of every inidviduall. EEP coordinators have breeding records and formulate breeding recommendations in order to keep the genetic variety as broad as possible.

The EEP for takhis was maintained by Dr. Waltraut Zimmermann of the zoo in Cologne until 2011. After that Dr. Lydia Kolter of the zoo of Cologne took over this task.

Istituto Oikos

Istituto Oikos is an independent organisation, which engages in environmental issues and socio-economic development in Europe and developing countries. It was founded in 1996 in Milan (Italy) by initiative of nature scientists and it specialises on projects in the fields of sustaining biodiversity, sustained management of the natural resources and nature management.

A well sustained environment shall guarantee that also the present and the future generations enjoy health and well-being.

Swiss Agency of Development and Cooperation (DEZA/SDC)

The Swiss Agency of Development and Cooperation (DEZA/SDC) is an important partner of the ITG. It supports ecologically oriented social and economic development and contributes to the sustainability of Takhi-habitat.

At the suggestion of the ITG, SDC has made possible the project Governance and Decentralisation“. It helps to encourage decentralisation, diversification of financial resources and democracy. SDC not only offers professional and financial support but also has broad contacts and networks in this region. The projects of the SDC match perfectly the implementation of the goals of the ITG.

Further support was also expressed by the director of the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) Bruno Oberle. In his letter of support he emphasizes the large social net and the widespread work of nature protection of the ITG which outgrows the initial efforts of bringing the Takhi back and which helps the whole region.

Academy of Sciences at Xinjiang, China

The Academy of Sciences at Xinjiang/China is another important partner of the ITG concerning the Takhi population management between Mongolia and China as well as in realising the vision of establishing a transnational protection area (Peace National Park).

National University of Mongolia

The National University of Mongolia is the most important partner of the FIWI (university of Vienna) and thus of the ITG in the field of science. Various scientific works are conducted and supervised together.
