The Takin

The Sichuan takin hails from the mountains, forests and valleys of western China.

This species of wooly ox-goat faces off against overhunting and the loss of forests in its native range. The Wilds hosts the largest breeding herd in North America!  Researchers at The Wilds are currently working with this massive herd to develop anesthesia, VHF and satellite tracking methods to study takin behavior at the Tangjiahe Reserve in China.
