On April 24 in Astana, the Kazakh forestry and wildlife committee and the Prague Zoological Garden signed a memorandum of understanding on the reintroduction of Przewalski's horse to Kazakhstan, QazMonitor reports citing the ministry of ecology.

The memorandum was signed by Nurlan Kylyshbaev of the forestry and wildlife committee and Miroslav Bobek, the director of the Prague Zoo. It’s expected that the signing will allow our countries to expand mutual cooperation in the field of wildlife conservation and preserve endangered species.

Last December, the Institute of Zoology and the Association for the Conservation of Biodiversity of Kazakhstan held a meeting with the Czech side and identified potential locations for the reintroduction of Przewalski's horse. These include Altyn-Emel and Kolsay Lakes national parks, as well as the Altyn Dala reserve.
