The Khustai National Park has an area of 50,620 hectares and is located 95 km west of the capital Ulaanbaatar. Run by the Mongolian Association for the Conservation of Nature and the Environment (MACNE), with the cooperation of the Foundation Reserves for the Przewalski Horse (FRPH) and the support of the Dutch government, one of the park's main goals is to reintroduce the Takhi, the last remaining wild horse worldwide. Also called the Przewalski horse (named after the Polish explorer who first 'discovered' the horse in 1878), the horses' numbers were greatly reduced after poachers killed them for meat, and overgrazing and development reduced their fodder and breeding grounds. In the last 10 years, the Takhi has been increased to more than 200 horses.
