Why do we need to preserve yaks?



  1. 0 Votes

    Yak play an important economic and societal role for the native people of Tibet and Southern China.  95% of the worlds existing Yak population lives in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. This yak population are an irreplaceable resource for the native populations.  Due to the yaks ability to survive harsh winter, they account for 90% of the livestock for people in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. In addition to being livestock, yak by products also provide cloth, shelter, food, and travel for native peoples. 

    Unfortunately, Yak are being killed off because of habitat loss and poaching.  If they are depleted to low enough levels, the native peoples of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau will suffer.
