Wild horse species returns to Kazakh steppes



A group of Przewalski horses were released into the wild in Kazakhstan after being flown in from Prague. This species of horse is genetically different from modern domestic horses and is well-suited to the harsh winters and scarce food of the Kazakh steppe. The horses will be closely monitored before being left in the wild to acclimatize. The journey to Kazakhstan was not without risks, but the horses arrived safely. The Przewalski horse population is now at 2,000 worldwide, with successful conservation efforts in various countries. The release of these horses in Kazakhstan is part of a larger effort to preserve endangered species in the region.
