Przewalski's horse by Chinneeb - GNUThe Prague zoo on Monday shipped out four rare Przewalski’s wild horses sending them to their ancient homeland in the Mongolian steppe as part of an ongoing project to save the critically endangered species.

Of four horses reintroduced last year, two mares have already given birth in the steppe.

The Czech zoo runs a breeding program and is charged with keeping records for the equines which previously survived only in captivity since becoming extinct in the wild in 1969.
