Indian Automaker Sponsors Pursuit to Save the Yak
MUMBAI, India, May 10, 2011 (ENS) – In order to save nature yak, the Indian automobile company Mahindra & Mahindra Limited. has sent conservationists in three of their vehicles on the rugged 16,000 kilometer journey within the most treacherous roads from the Himalayan mountain range.
A cooperation between your automaker and also the Himalayan Explorers, several motorsports enthusiasts from Nagpur, the Trans-Himalayan expedition is really a unique initiative, which aims to attract public focus on the continuing loss of wild yak populations.

The yak, Box mutus, a lengthy-haired bovine, used to be found through the Himalayan region, the Tibetan Plateau, China, Nepal so that as far north as Mongolia and Russia, however the species has become listed as Susceptible to extinction through the IUCN Red Listing of Threatened Species.
The species already is recognized as extinct both in Nepal and Bhutan. Before the 1990s, wild yaks lived on northern Nepal, but there’s no evidence the species still happens in Nepal today.
Merely a couple of wild yaks stay in northern India, especially in the Ladakh region of Kashmir.
Yaks inhabit all downhill tundra, grasslands, and cold desert parts of the northern Tibetan plateau between 3,200 and 5,400 meters (10,000 and 18,000 ft) and don’t thrive in warmer climates. The species moves seasonally, climbing down into lower valleys during the cold months.
Poaching, including commercial poaching for meat, has been seen probably the most serious threat to wild yaks, based on studies by renowed American biologist George Schaller yet others.
Males tend to be susceptible to hunting, especially by motorized hunters, simply because they have a tendency to disperse from the hill bases and ridges apparently liked by females. Using the confiscation of weapons in the majority of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, poaching has declined as a menace to yak populations.

Still, wild yaks have limited tolerance for disturbance from people as well as their animals they have a tendency to escape from places that animals are herded. Growing animals herds and elevated concentration of pasture use displaces wild yaks and eventually reduces accessibility to wild yak habitat, based on scientists quoted through the IUCN Red List.
Flagged removed from Mahindra’s automotive plant at Kandivali, Mumbai on Thursday, a Scorpio Sports utility vehicle and 2 Scorpio Getaway vehicles will traverse Kibtu region of Arunachal Pradesh, visit Ladakh via Bhutan, and visit Sikkim, Nepal, Uttaranchal, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir.
On the way, the convoy will advocate yak conservation among highland residents, while teaching them scientific ways of yak breeding and management.
There’s another motive for Mahindra & Mahindra – the organization aims to show the challenging and rugged characteristics of their vehicles.
When the vehicles have showed up in their destination, this is the very first Trans-Himalayan expedition to become completed at one stretch by motoring organization.
An AmericanDollar11.1 billion multinational group located in Mumbai, Mahindra employs greater than 117,000 individuals over 100 countries. Mahindra includes a presence within the automotive industry, agribusiness, aerospace, components, talking to services, defense, energy, financial services, industrial equipment, logistics, property, retail and steel.
