  • The overall ecosystem condition has greatly improved – the area occupied by wild sea buckthorn forests naturally growing along the Zavkhan river has extended from 100 to 1000 hectares by 2020. 

  • Thanks to continuous cooperation with and involvement of local herders, local ownership of Takhi re-introduction program has increased, which results in the locals participation in conservation activities such as volunteer ranger patrolling, preserving riparian forests and information sharing.
