Baby Boom of Endangered Species

Keepers closely watched female Przewalski’s horse Brandy for the past several weeks as they realized a birth was imminent. The foal was seen nursing soon after birth, which indicates the mother and offspring are bonding well.
Przewalski’s horses are critically endangered—only a few hundred reintroduced animals live in protected areas in their native China and Mongolia. The National Zoo is at the forefront of Przewalski’s horse conservation, which includes detailed reproductive studies of the herd at CRC, leading the Przewalski’s Horse North American Species Survival Plan and using GIS technology to study their movements in the wild.
