World’s Last Wild Horse Returns to Russian Steppes

The species known as Przewalski’s horse  – which only two decades ago was extinct in the wild — has been saved by scientists!

Six animals born at a reserve in the south of France are now spending their first winter in Russia’s flagship reintroduction project for the species.

Eventually scientists hope to have 100 of the endangered animals on the site in the Orenburg Reserves, a cluster of six strictly protected nature areas along the border with Kazakhstan.

This is a great day! Keep up with this story and comment your thoughts!
