why did we choose this animal?? out of all the things!! i doubt any pakistani has seen it
We would have chosen snow leapord in Pakistan IF they are present in Pakistan.
The majority of the existing population of Snow Leopards in the wild is in the Karakorums. The only ever instance of a Snow Leopard captured on video in the wild in action was broadcasted in the first episode of the awesome BBC Series "Earth".I always thought the snowleopard was present in Pakistan.
One of the most majestic and beautiful creatures on earth
Markhors aren't on the decline. In fact conservation efforts have increased their population and illegal hunting has been controlled.oh well if we have chosen MARKHOOR then atleast we should protect it from extinction!!! just 2500 left!!!!!! we have a rich culture history & yet in pakistan no one cares!!!!
Snow Leopard is present in Pakistan in the Norther Areas.
One of the reason the insignia of the FCNA is the Snow Leopard as we have them and even Nat Geo have made documentaries in Pakistan about this beautiful animal.
Strange many Pakistanis even don't know this fact.
Oh my bad. Anyways it was my ignorance I really didn't know about it. Thanks for all this valuable info. Can any one of you tell me how many snow leopards we have right now in our northern areas. What is their population?The majority of the existing population of Snow Leopards in the wild is in the Karakorums. The only ever instance of a Snow Leopard captured on video in the wild in action was broadcasted in the first episode of the awesome BBC Series "Earth".
Sadly, two Snow Leopards have been donated over the years to Marghazar Zoo , Islamabad for limited viewing and not having the necessary finances to set up a temperature controlled cage for this sensitive animal, one suffered from dehydration and was sent back while the other one suffered from multiple diseases as well.
Snow Leopards are in conservation in the Khunjerab National Park and the Central Karakoram National Park.

Markhors aren't on the decline. In fact conservation efforts have increased their population and illegal hunting has been controlled.
The NWFP Wildlife Dept has over the years issued very rare licenses for Markhor Hunting. Licenses for hunting 1 Markor were sold between 81,000 USD and 58,000 USD each in the Toshi Game Reserve and the Gairath Reserve in Chitral and once in the Kaigah Reserve in Kohistan as well.
Well you have one more reason to be frustrated about so called Pakistan occupied areas.They are present in ur Northern Areas ...unless u consider NA not to a part of Pakistan.....
Since those people who objected for associating snow leopard to Pakistan did not bothered to chanllenge your baseless map.... a classic case of usual misinformation and yet false but ...towering claims.They are present in ur Northern Areas ...unless u consider NA not to a part of Pakistan.....
