Why donate?

The ancestors of our horses must not die out!
The primeval wild horse is not a feral domestic horse, but the only surviving wild form of the horse. From once huge herds, less than 40 animals have survived in zoos. By reintroducing the takhi to their last home, you are also protecting the unique ecosystem of the Gobi Desert with numerous other rare species.

Where does my money go to?
