Dzud Winter in Mongolia – How are the takhi doing?

The current Dzud winter (extremely harsh winter event) in Mongolia is all over the international news. Although, the Great Gobi B was hit by a Dzud this winter, the takhi are doing well. The winter was very snowy with up to 60 cm of snow cover in the Gobi for several months. But due to good hay reserves and sufficient winter feeding, only three takhi died so far.
