Mongolia 'dzud', 2010 | World Animal Protection
In 2010, A cruel summer drought in Mongolia was followed by a viciously cold winter - a combination known locally as a 'dzud'. Nearly eight million livestock died due to extreme cold and because the drought stopped animal fodder from growing. The government declared a state of emergency. With local partners, we delivered fodder and milk powder to 2,517 households. The fodder was largely given to pregnant animals - to prevent another generation of animals from being lost.
