Population Growth since 1992
In 1992 reintroduction of the Takhi in the Great Gobi B Strictly Protected Area started near the place, where the last free-roaming Przewalski's Horse had been seen in the sixties of the last century. Until 2004 Takhis were transported form European zoos to Takhin tal on a regular basis.
Ever since the population developed mainly through offspring, intra-mongolian exchange-programmes and again newly transported zoo-animals since 2012 in order to increase genetic variability.
In early 2020, 77 mares were identified as pregnant, the first foal was born on April 8th. On June 11th, another milestone was reached: for the first time since the Takhi were extinct in the wild in the 1960s, 300 Takhi were again roaming the Great Gobi B SPA.
