Temporary pools are made in steppe to save gazelles from thirst. Young workers of “Dorniin Ikh Gegee” and “Tomo Building” LLC have built pools for preserving gazelles from drought. Due to lack of rain in eastern Dornod province, a large number of gazelle died of thirst. Therefore, workers of “Dorniin Ikh Gegee” company and “Tomo Building” company have built four pools in the steppe by sheer willingness. The pools have the capacity to preserve 30 tons of water each, totalling 120 tons altogether. Although gazelles totalled 5 million back in 1970, the number reduced down to 3 million in 2010. Aside from natural disasters, such as droughts, severe winter disaster and diseases, illegal hunts drastically decrease the gazelle population. As a result, the herds that consisted of 20-30 thousand gazelles 20 years ago are now migrating with groups of only 30-40. Therefore, these diligent young people have decided to expand their deeds and create “Gazelle preserving fund”.
