Briefly about the project

Kulans attracted serious attention of international aid foundations only when a threat of extinction became quite real - only 200-300 of them were visually registered in 1999 out of 5000 of Badhyz population in mid 90s. Serious conservation measures lead to the animal’s concentration already in half a year – and exact census proved that there rested about 450 of them. And in three years there were about 1000 kulans already.
