Wild horses reintroduced to Kazakhstan steppes after absence of two centuries

The world’s last wild horses, known as Przewalski’s horses, have made a triumphant return to Kazakhstan after a 200-year absence. Flown in from Berlin and Prague on a Czech air force plane, these unique horses have a rich history dating back to the domestication of horses in central Asia 5,500 years ago. Facing extinction due to human activities such as hunting and habitat fragmentation in the 1960s, efforts led by Prague zoo and other organizations aim to restore biodiversity by reintroducing these majestic creatures back into the wild. This daring mission marks the beginning of a new chapter in the story of the last wild horse on the planet.
