Life style of Himalayan ibex (markhor) in Pakistan

" Markhor (Ibex)  is one of the largest, most beautiful & most magnificent members of the Caprine or goat family, and it is the official “National Animal of Pakistan.” It has perhaps the most impressive horns of the family, with huge, spiraled, twisting horns that are either straight or flaring in outline. its scientific name is Capra falconeri. "

In Pakistan ibex are mostly found in the huge mountains of Gilgit Baltistan, they live in mountains and survive in the coldest weather, sometimes they have to live in snow as well but they easily adjust to these conditions naturally, but what we see in recent times, the ibex population faces numerous threats across its ranges in Pakistan, from habitat loss to illegal hunting, climate change and lack of awareness about the species. however, as a result of the responsibility the local community and Gilgit Baltistan wildlife department have taken to protect the Himalayan ibex, their population is seen to be increasing & this is an encouraging sign for locals and for tourist who wishes to see this unique animal.

 The area of upper Hunza (gojal) is on the top of the list in providing a safe environment for Himalayan ibex but in a few areas of Gilgit Baltistan the wildlife department is not so active & the population of Himalayan ibex is decreasing day by day and in some places, they seem to be disappeared from the mountains as well which is some to worry about. the local hunters go to considerable mountains to find ibex and to hunt it to fulfill there wish of hunting an ibex due to which the ibex population has left those places in Gilgit Baltistan.

we should do as much as we can to protect the beautiful wildlife animal in these areas so that our generation can witness and experience their existence. The Ibex has a wider distribution and it is plentiful. Its survival in Pakistan is not so threatened Pakistan due to the inaccessibility of its habitat due to the extensive concentration of high mountain ranges in the extreme north region of Pakistan
