report on the future of yak that lives in ladakh region
Yaks are widely used in the mountainous regions of the Tibet Plateau as transportation, and are relied upon as the main ingredients of the local diet. There are supposed to be as many as 13 million yaks populating the barren landscape at the foothills of the Himalayas .Yaks are members of the bovine family. They are unique animals that live mainly in Qinghai and Tibet plateau. They are two coated animals with a coat of long hair and a soft under down which sheds annually and is normally gathered. Yaks can weigh over 1200 pounds and have a lifespan of 20-25 years. One Yak produces only about 100gms of hair a year. This is pulled or combed in the spring when the animal moults. The coarser outer hair and fine inner hair is then separated. Hair varies in color from black (wild yaks) to shades of brown. Most prized is inner down hair from yearling calves with a diameter of 15-17 microns and 4-5 cm in length, the adult down is 18-20 microns in diameter and 3-3.5 cm in length. It feels very soft and downy very like camel hair.Throughout history, the domesticated yak of central Asia has provided Tibetan herders with wool, leather, meat, milk, and cheese. It is a beast of burden and its dung is used as fuel and fertilizer. There are many of them. The larger wild yak, however, decimated by hunting, is an endangered species. Once widely distributed in the high valleys and plateaus of Tibet and the adjoining mountain country, the wild yak now survives in scattered, isolated herds in the most remote, inhospitable areas. Although officially protected from hunting and commercial trade, its future may depend on suitable reserves with good pastures and efficient protection.The wild yak is a sturdy and bulky ungulate with high lung capacity and a thick coat, which are adaptations to the high-altitude environment of Tibet. The males have imposing, stately horns. Although in the past the animal occurred in a wider area of Ladakh, presently it is confined to the Chhang Chhenmo Valley. The historical distribution of the species was spread as far west as the Gya-Miru area, as indicated by the presence of several pit traps, targeted at wild yak, in the area. Species in the past suffered at the hands of trophy hunters, but competition with domestic livestock for the scarce rangeland resources is presently threatening the animal’s population in Ladakh. There is an estimated population of about 200 wild yaks in the region.
The future of Yak is not good at all. it is been really a shameful thing for humans that they are the main cause of deteroiting the nature cylcle by killing the animals just to fullfill there needs, yak is one of the example. there are two types of yak one is wild yak its habitat is treeless uplands and is been killed for food and their close matted under hair, shaggy outer hair which is insulated from cold by dense. another is domestic yak it is kept for milk. fibre its precious and long fur , for meat, drawing ploughs etc. it is also used in sports. lenght of wild yak is about 3-3.4m and lenght of domestic yak is about 2-2.2m.
This report give us an idea on the future of Yak that lives in Ladakh Region of the Himalayan mountain. In this region Yak's have been used for various purposes such as it is used for economic awell as cultural activites, domestic Yak's are also used in sports. Yak's are very useful animals. Their fibers are used to make warm clothes. The foreign tourists are very fond of Yak's meat and their fiber and so there traders find these business as profitable to them and they started to hunt them and make different products form it. If such type of hunting and making products from Yak continue in Ladakh region then their future is very grim. If we do not prohibit the hunting of Yak then their is possibility that surey a day will come when Yak's will became completely distinct and people of future do not know how a Yak looks like.
what is the furture of yak of ladakh
please help me to write a report to the wwf about the conservation of yak
thank you kumar sarath for ur answer....
its not there.these yaks are so ruthlessly killed that no one knows in the world and all this is because of illitracy of that region who dont know the importance of yaks
The population of yak, the friendly long-haired bovine found in the Himalayan region, is rapidly declining in India for a variety of reasons ranging from improper nutrition and degradation of natural grasslands.There are about 65,000 yaks in the country now -- a steep decline from 1,32,000 in 1977. The yak population in China is 13 million.
