WHAT DOES CHIGETAI MEAN IN ENGLISH?

chigetai

Mongolian wild ass

The Mongolian wild ass is a subspecies of the onager. It is found in Mongolia and northern China, and was previously found in Kazakhstan before being extirpated there through hunting. It may be synonymous with the possible proposed separate subspecies, the Gobi khulan. The Mongolian wild ass's distribution range was dramatically reduced during the 1990s. A 1994–1997 survey estimated its population size at 33,000 to 63,000 individuals over a continuous distribution range encompassing all of southern Mongolia. In 2003, a new survey found approximately 20,000 individuals over an area of 177,563 square kilometres in southern Mongolia. The population estimates of the Mongolian population should be treated with caution due to a lack of proven survey protocols. Despite that, the subspecies lost about 50% of its former distribution range in Mongolia in the past 70 years. The population is declining due to poaching and competition from grazing livestock. The conservation status of the species is evaluated as endangered. Since 1953, the Mongolian wild ass has been fully protected in Mongolia.
