The park breeds only rare and endangered species of wildlife as it is our aim to breed and protect rare and endangered wildlife with the aim of returning them to the wild when it is safe to do so. The park has also returned Przwalski horses to Chinaand Mongolia, Burmese pythons to Indonesia, Ocelots to Mexico and a black rhino to South Africa. All were born at the park.

You could say that Ecovolunteer is a travel agent. But the trips they organize are not your average holidays. They bring you to places that are not accessible to tourists, including Hustain Nuruu, where you get the possibility to protect nature and its inhabitants by helping local organizations with their conservation projects.

Community based tourism is a mode of tourism that is initiated, managed and owned by local communities. Sustainability is achieved by keeping the tourism activity on a small-scale, and in harmony with the environment, culture, and traditions.
With the help of several Mongolian and international organisations, many communities decided to organise themselves and work on their tourism activities together. In 2006, they founded the Community Based Tourism Network (CBTN) of Mongolia, a Mongolian Non-Governmental Organisation of which they all became members.
This is a very nice example of the endangered species project by a school. Konawaena Elementary School is located in Kealakekua, Hawaii on the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.
