Summary On the Brink features four 50 minute films that look at how scientists and conservationists are working to protect several endangered species and habitat: tigers in Asia, pandas in China’s Sichuan Province, wild horses in Western China, and a tropical coral reef in Bali. Natural History New Zealand (NHNZ) is one of the world’s leading television production companies. Can the world's only truly wild horse survive returning to their ancestral home? Relentless poaching early last century saw the oldest horse species in the world die out in their original habitat. But thanks to a breeding program in China, 27 Przewalski's horses have returned to their homeland where their ancestors roamed - the vast 18,000 square kilometer Kala Maili prairie in West China. Accustomed to an easy life within the enclosures, back in the wild and hostile northern region, the herd faces extreme winter snows and summer droughts. Wild Horses - Return to China is the story of the herd's struggle for survival during their first year back in the wild
