The yak is listed as Vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Its number one current threat is poaching. Yaks are poached because they have valuable meat, hides, and coats. The meat will obviously feed a lot of people and their hides and coats are used to make capes, hats, boots, shoes, blankets, and other items. However, poaching has decreased, as it was once listed as an endangered species.
Yaks are also losing their habitat to farmers, who use the yaks’ land for raising their own livestock. A third problem yaks face is competition with their domestic counterparts, who are capable of spreading diseases.
