Tale of the Przewalski's Horse: Coming Home to Mongolia

Tale of the Przewalski’s Horse: Coming Home to Mongolia

For thousands of years, wild horses roamed Europe and Asia. Their endurance made them ideal partners for humans. As domesticated horses lost their military importance, wild horses nearly vanished. Around 1900, collectors captured the last Przewalski’s horses from the Gobi desert. By the 1970s, only twelve of these wild horses remained. Jan and Inge Bouman dedicated their lives to reintroducing the Przewalski’s horse to the wild. Their success transformed conservation methods and helped protect the Hustai National Park ecosystem, benefiting local herdsmen and pasture management.
