Peace National Park

A transnational Vision for a Nature Reserve

Large Habitat may help the Takhis to survive

For the re-introduction programme of the Prezwalski's horse to be successful in the long run, it has to be embedded in a broader context of ecosystemconservation, Only that way migrating species will be able to find as many ecological niches as possible which are important for their survival.

Horses as well as far-ranging Asiatic Wild Asses  equus hemionus were fitted with satellite tracking collars in order to determine their position, home range and habitat preferences. At the onset, data collection was restricted to the eastern part of the SPA, whereas today it encompasses the entire Gobi region in Mongolia and the adjacent area of northern Xingjian in China.


Central asian transboundary Peace Park

In order to strenghten cross-country cooperation in nature conservation, four Takhi-stallions were transported from the Jimsar breeding-station in China to Takhintal in Mongolia.
 
The border strip between China and Mongolia in the Dzungarian Gobi is sparsely populated and could potentially connect the two Great Gobi A and B (Dzungarian Gobi) in Mongolia with the Kaamaili Reserve  in China, where there are presently also initiatives to re-introduce Pzrewalski's horses. If managed in common the area could potentially constitute one of the largest continuos protected area (over 70'000 km2) in the world: the central Asian Transboundary Peace Park.
