29th Annual Beastly Ball

  • Minnesota Zoo 13000 Zoo Boulevard Apple Valley, MN, 55124 United States (map)

Join us for the Minnesota Zoo's 29th Beastly Ball on Saturday, April 29, 2017 celebrating the Asian Wild Horse. The only truly wild horse species left on the planet, the Asian wild horse was pushed to extinction in the wild in the 1960s. A breeding program saved this species, allowing them to be reintroduced to their native habitat – with nearly 500 Asian wild horses roaming the grasslands of China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan. Today, more than 80 Asian wild horses living in Mongolia are descendants of a stallion that once lived at the Minnesota Zoo.
