What are the current problems faced by the yak?



  1. 0 Votes

    The yak is listed as Vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Its number one current threat is poaching. It is also losing its habitat to farmers, who use yak land for raising their livestock. A third problem yaks face is competition with their domestic counterparts, who are capable of spreading diseases.

    The increase in domestic livestock herds has been crowding out wild yak from their natural habitats and increasing the likelihood of crossbreeding, which can lead to the introduction of foreign disease to the wild yak population.  Yaks are also listed as a vulnerable species due to poaching and the declining availability of breeding and grazing ground.
