The Przewalski Horse Association: TAKH

The Przewalski Horse Association, TAKH, was created in 1990 to help bring an end to this paradoxical situation. Its aim is to recreate a Przewalski Horse population living in the wild. To this end, in 1993 and 1994 eleven individuals taken from zoos were installed in the département of Lozère, in one of the wildest and most beautiful regions in France: the Causse Méjean, a limestone plateau traditionally used for sheep rearing. Today they make up the Le Villaret herd.

Foundation for the Preservation of the Przewalski Horse

The national symbol of Mongolia, the Przewalski horse or Takh, has returned to its country of origin.

The remarkable come-back tells a story that spans well over 30 years.
