The long range goal of the Equid Specialist Group is to conserve biological diversity by developing and executing programs to study, save, restore, and manage wisely wild equids and their habitats. In the short-term, the specific goals are 1) to identify and work with scientists, government personnel, and local residents in the countries where wild zebras, asses, and horses exist, 2) to help raise funds for equid conservation and training projects, and 3) to coordinate with and assist other Species Survival Groups.
