ASIAN WILD HORSE

SCIENTIFIC NAME:  Equus Ferus

HABITAT:  Originally thriving in the grassland areas of Mongolia, this species was pushed to desert habitats.  They have been reintroduced to National Reserves of Mongolia and China

CONSERVATION STATUS: Classified as Extinct in the Wild until 2008, but since a series of reintroductions, have developed free ranging populations in the wild. All Przewalski’s horses alive today are descendent of 14 individuals from a captive breeding program. Current classification as Endangered with populations increasing.

FUN FACT:   Once extinct in the wild, the Przewalski’s horse is considered the last true wild horse; its populations derive from re-introductions from zoos.
