Endangered horse cloned for the first time

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A little baby horse named Kurt is a symbol of renewed hope for the survival of his kind. Born on 6 August 2020, he is the world's first ever successfully cloned Przewalski's horse, an endangered wild horse native to the steppes of central Asia.

What makes Kurt even more exciting is that he was cloned from genetic material cryopreserved 40 years ago - reviving genetic diversity thought to have been lost decades ago.

"This colt is expected to be one of the most genetically important individuals of his species," said zoologist Bob Wiese, chief life sciences officer at San Diego Zoo Global.
