Przewalski's Horses live on the Mongolian plains and prairies.
Przewalski's Horses love eating grass. Sometimes they nibble a little tree bark.
Przewalski's Horses have short neck and legs. They look like ponies a little, don't they?
What!? There are no wild horses?
Horses have contributed to the lives of humans from old times. They carry people and their baggage and help on the farm by ploughing the farmland. For that kind of activities, people crossbred horses over and over again so that they can run even faster and carry more baggage. The only remaining wild horse surviving in the world today is the Przewalski's Horse. It was never domesticated or crossbred.
Let's save the last surviving wild horse on the planet!
In the 1960s, Przewalski's Horses disappeared once. They were hunted for their meat and hide. Others lost in the feeding frenzy with farm horses. In the 1990s, a project started to return Przewalski's Horses to the wild. Zoos in Europe raised Przewalski's Horses and returned them to wildlife sanctuaries in hometown, Mongolia, and the number of Przewalski's Horses in the wild is starting to increase, little by little.
