Further Re-introduction Projects

There are a few other Takhi-Projects going on in several Parts of Mongolia

Hustai Nuuru

In the national park of Hustai Nuruu in central Mongolia (approximately 600 km2), the Dutch couple Inge and Jan Bowman established an exemplary project in cooperation with the „Mongolian Association for the Conservation of Nature" .

Takhi reintroduction is also part of an overall develoment project with a well developped monitoring and scientific supervision. Approximately 260 takhis live in this protected area. The project is supported by the Dutch government with generous funds.

Chomin Tal

After extensive research concerning reintroduction, WWF of France brought a total of 22 Takhis to Chomin Tal in 2004 and 2005.

The population growth was slow at the beginning because the older mares failed to reproduce.With the foaling of younger mares the population started to get bigger. This growth was further supported by the Prague zoo, which brought one stallion and three mares to Chomin Tal. It now counts 34 Takhi.

Kasachstan

First reintroduction attempts in Kazakhstan were made 2003 on the initiative of the Munich zoo Hellabrunn. However reintroduction in Altyn Emel was not successful.

In the meantime, the project was evaluated by Petra Kaczensky. The zoos of Munich und Nuernberg are now planning a new effort in a different area.
