Mongolia – November, 2015
Once on the brink of extinction, the Przewalski’s horse (known as ‘takhi’ in Mongolian) is now rebounding thanks to the work of conservationists and scientists who are successfully reintroducing the species into the wild.
This photo-essay documents the work of conservationists at the Hustai National Park, in central Mongolia, who are working to protect this small community of wild Mongolian horses.
It is currently believed that the world is experiencing a new “age of extinction”, the 6th to occur throughout global history. Species are vanishing across the world, as habitats are encroached upon and damaged by the ever-growing influence of man.
