Minister Bat-Erdene Bat-Ulziin of the Ministry of Nature, Environment and Tourism (MET) has just signed a 10-year Memorandum of Understanding with the International Takhi Group and handed it over to Batsukh Jamiyandorj, Executive Director of the International Takhi Group’s Mongolia office. Many thanks to the staff of the Special Protected Areas Authority for their continued cooperation in drafting and approving the MoU.
We look back with satisfaction and pride on 30 years of reintroducing the Wild Horse to Mongolia. The reintroduction proves that even critically endangered species of megafauna, even those that are extinct in the wild, can be saved. However, this rescue can succeed only if their original ecosystems are preserved and remain functional.
ITG is looking forward to many more years of fruitful cooperation with the Mongolian government to preserve the homeland of takhi.
