Threats and Conservation
After they became extinct in the wild, the few hundred horses in various zoos around the world were managed very carefully to ensure that a genetically healthy population was maintained. In the 1990s, a number of reintroduction programmes began and continue to the present day. The return of the Przewalski's horse to its natural environment is a success story for conservation and, despite ongoing problems, it is hoped that at least two self-sustained populations will soon be a reality. Currently the Przewalski’s horse is being reintroduced into two main sites in Mongolia and they have re-established themselves well.
