Three Przewalski mares have been successfully transported to Mongolia on board a Czech military plane as part of Prague Zoo’s long-term programme to save the endangered species, the zoo said in a press release on Thursday. The Przewalski horse is a rare subspecies native to Mongolia, which became extinct in the wild in the 1960s. Prague Zoo has played a major role in saving the horse, breeding it and returning it to its natural environment.
To date, the zoo has sent 34 horses to a nature reserve in the Mongolian steppe, where they have started breeding successfully.
