Veterinarian support

Angela Becsek, a Swiss veterinarian specialized in equine medicine, arrived in Takhiin Tal. In the next couple of weeks, she will be assisting Dalai, the takhi researcher, in the examination of dead wildlife, especially the takhi that died in the harsh dzuud winter. These “postmortem” examinations are essential for understanding why individual animals die and, overall, are an essential cornerstone of wildlife monitoring. It thus serves, for example, the early detection of diseases and allows timely intervention and prophylactic measures to be taken before animal diseases spread.
