Przewalski’s Wild Horse

Przewalski’s Wild Horse

Equus ferus przewalskii
 
Status: Endangered (USFWS), SSP
Range: Formerly much of Europe and parts of Asia
Significant cultural and political changes, hunting, and competition with livestock led to the extinction of this species in the wild in the late 1960s. The success of breeding programs has made it possible to reintroduce nearly 400 Przewalski’s wild horses to sites in Mongolia and China.
