Karakoram-West Tibetan Plateau alpine steppe

WWF Abstract

In the shadow of the world’s second-tallest mountain—K2—sheep and goats can be found in abundance, including the endangered Marco Polo sheep. These animals in turn form a substantial prey base for the endangered snow leopard. Unfortunately, both the leopard and its prey are threatened by domestic animals, which use the same rangelands and compete for limited resources.
