Major scientific institutions like the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute's Conservation Ecology Center have worked to reintroduce scarce Przewalski's horses
into Chinese nature reserves.
The Przewalski's horse
bears the name of a Russian explorer of Polish origin, Nikolay Przewalski, who discovered in Mongolia and described the species in the 19th century.
The rapid demise of the reddish-brown Przewalski's Horse

For comparison, they also sequenced the genomes of five domestic horse breeds, a donkey and a Przewalski's horse
, the rare wild horse that lives in central Asia.

A number of other field conservation programs focusing on species ranging from white-winged wood ducks (Cairina scutulata) to Mexican wolves (Canis lupus baileyi) and Przewalski's horse
(Equus przewalski), taking place around the world, are under development and will be added to the site in the coming months.
Roughly 450 animals of eighty species indigenous to the woods of middle Europe live here: red deer, reindeer, wild boar, mules, bison, lynx, and Przewalski's horse
, a species that, without the Tierpark's help, would have died out long ago.
