Restoring By R.


Sandwiched between Russia to the north and China to the south the vast,


untouched grass-covered mountains and plains of Outer Mongolia have been, and still are, the perfect setting and habitat for all things equine. It is here, half way around the globe, that an emerging democratic country is making an effort to return to the wild an exquisite creature that was allowed to go extinct many decades ago: the prehistoric Przewalski horse of Outer Mongolia, the Takhi. These furry, stout, hearty horses carried Genghis Khan and his armies as far away as contemporary Western Europe and down to Southern Asia to create one of the largest empires ever known in human history. The very same descendants of these Takhi exist and flourish to this day.


In sharp contrast to the United States government racing to mismanage our


wild equines into extinction, the nation of Outer Mongolia, along with an in- ternational consortium of conservation agencies, is attempting to reintroduce their native wild horses, the Takhi, to their rightful home in an effort to in- crease tourism, reinvigorate their wild lands, and to reclaim their national heritage that had been plundered and destroyed by past governments and agencies; a quest well worth investigating.
