Major Achievements

In the years 2004-2020, the number of Przewalski’s horse in Khomyn Tal has grown from 26 to 100.

The number of wild ungulates including the endangered Saiga has increased significantly in the years of protection.

The overall ecosystem condition has greatly improved – the area occupied by wild sea buckthorn forests naturally growing along the banks of Zavkhan river has widened

Thanks to continuous cooperation and involvement, local herders are much more aware of environmental issues which resulted in voluntary ranger networks and income generation cooperatives such as felt making and sea buckthorn harvesting.

These improvements as a result of joint efforts of Khomyn Talyn Takhi NGO and TAKH Association have not been unnoticed – initially a Local Protected Area, Khomyn Tal was upgraded into a National Park in May 2020.
