current problems faced by yaks in ladhak



  1. 0 Votes

    The current ICUN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) status of the wild yak is listed as vulnerable. The main reason for their population decline in the last century is poaching (both by natives and outsiders) and habitat loss.  Because of their multipurpose use for milk, wool, and meat, they are considered valuable animals.  As their demand increases, the number of domestic herds aren’t enough to meet the needs of natives and traders, so they turn to poaching wild yaks.
