Threatened dentistry is starting to grow. Last year there lived over ninety

The number of teeth kept in the Czech Republic is increasing. At the last day of last year there were 93 in the country. They showed the results of the second nationwide addition of these endangered animals across Europe. In 2015, over seven dozen teeth were kept in the Czech Republic. Dalibor Dostál from the Czech Lands is informing about this.

"The increase of the number of animals helped not only the successful breeding of dentists in a large part of domestic breeds, but also the establishment of a new herd in Zoo Tábor," said Dalibor Dostál, director of Česká krajina. This is the regional office of the European Bison Conservation Center. The herd in Tábor is also valuable for another reason. As the first Czech zoological garden there were established rare breeds of so-called lowland lines. Other domestic ZOOs have the so-called low-Caucasian line.

In addition to zoological gardens, Zubři also performs in domestic fields, reservations, farmhouses and a small zoo. In the ranks, the lowland line dominates, with 66 domestic teeth. "Only five animals originating in Bielężka in Poland have established a lowland line. This line is not only zoologically worthwhile but also shows a better overall condition , " explained Miloslav Jirka of the Biological Center of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

Compared to 2015, this is an increase of almost one-fifth. If the current trend continues, the number of teeth in the Czech Republic could exceed the symbolic hundred this year. In 1993, the studbook in the Czech Republic recorded only 16 teeth in three zoological gardens. In 2000, there were 38 teeth in four domestic breeds and three zoos.

Worldwide numbers of teeth in 2016 are not yet known. In 2015, the world's population was 6083 dentists. To save this species, it is necessary to achieve at least 10,000 pieces.

The dentists were completely exterminated by humans after the First World War. Only a few captive animals survived. They managed to assemble a group of 12 teeth who formed the basis of the current population. The rare, low-lying line of them was only seven, of which only five left offspring. Only pure-bred dentists from the twelve founders are recorded in the European Dentist's Stud Book.

Protective organization Czech landscape on projects related to the return and protection of large ungulates cooperates with experts from the Biological Center of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Charles University in Prague, Institute of Vertebral Biology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague, Mendel University of Brno, Masaryk University in Brno and other professional institutions.
