Video Title:
Wild Horse Conservation in Mongolia
Description:
Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute scientists are committed to saving the last wild horse species: Przewalski’s horses, or takhi as they are known in Mongolian. The Smithsonian is collaborating with its partners in northwestern China and in Hustai National Park in Mongolia, where this video was filmed, to support the reintroduction of this species that was once extinct in the wild. Through satellite GPS tracking of the horses, we empower project staff to monitor the horses and to better understand their ecology and ecosystem, and use what we learn to enhance their chances for long-term survival.
