National Parks in Pakistan

National Parks in Pakistan:
In Pakistan a National Park is an area of outstanding scenic merit and natural beauty where the landscape, flora and fauna are protected and preserved in a natural state. Public access for recreation, education and research is provided for. Access roads and other facilities should be planned so they do not conflict with the main objectives of national parks. Hunting wild animals is prohibited, as is firing gun or otherwise interfering with animals and plants. Clearing land for cultivation, mining or allowing polluted water to flow in National Parks is also prohibited. Under the regulations, these acts may be allowed for scientific purposes or to improve the park..

The following are the major National Parks of Pakistan:
1 Kirthar National Park - Sindh.
2 Khunjerab National Park - Upper Hunza.
3 Chitral Gol National Park - Chitral.
4 Lal Suhanra National Park - Bahawalpur.

Wild life in Pakistan

Wild life in Pakistan:
In Mighty Mountain Range: The mountainous areas embracing the Himalayan, Karakorum and Hindukush Ranges are rich in fauna and flora, as compared to other parts of the country.

These areas provide an excellent habitat for wildlife in the form of alpine grazing lands, sub-alpine scrub and temperate forests. These habitats support a variety of wild animals. The areas are difficult for human beings to access, hence, most wildlife is present in reasonable numbers though some are endangered for other reasons.
Some of the main Wildlife Species are the Snow Leopard, The Black and The Brown wild Lifebears, Otter, Wolf, Lynx, Himalayan Ibex, Markhor, Bharal, Marco Polo's Sheep, Shapu, Musk Deer, Marmots, Tragopan and Monal Pheasants. The Snow Partridge and Snowcock reside at higher elevations. The Rhesus Monkey, Common Langur, Red Fox, Black Bear, Common Leopard, a variety of Cats, Musk Deer (over a limited area), Goral, Several Species of Flying Squirrels, Chakor, Partridge and Pheasants (Koklass, Kaleej and Cheer) live in the lower elevations. Amongst these the Snow Leopard, Musk Deer, Marco Polo's Sheep, and The Brown Bear are endangered. The Tibetan Wild Ass and the Blue Sheep populations have been reduced drastically. The Cheer Pheasant is reported to be extinct from within Pakistan's boundaries, and is included in the IUCN Red Data Book. The Western Horned Tragopan was reported to have disappeared from within Pakistani territory, but has now been relocated to Indus Kohistan, although its numbers are low.

In Himalayan Foothills and the Potohar Region:
including the Salt Range and Kala Chitta Range, are covered with scrub forests, which have been reduced to scanty growth in most places. Medium-sized animals like the Punjab Urial, Barking Deer, Goral, Chinkara, Partridges (Grey and Black), seesee and Chakor are supported in these habitats. A variety of songbird fauna also occurs in these areas.

In The Indus Flood Plains and Deserts ( Cholistal, Thal and Thar) Region:
Vast Indus flood plains have been cleared of natural vegetation to grow crops. Very little wildlife habitat has been left untouched. Only animals like the Jackal, Mongoose, Jungle Cat, Civet Cat, Scaly Anteater, Desert Cat and the wild hare occur in these areas. Hog Deer is found in riverine tracts. The crop residues and wild growth support reasonable populations of Black and Grey Partridges.
Little vegetative cover, severity of climatic conditions and the great thrust of grazing animals on the deserts have left wild animals in a precarious position. Parts of Thall and Cholistan are now being irrigated, with the situation almost identical to that of the flood plains. Chinkara is the only animal, which can still be found in average numbers in Cholistan, but rarely in Thall. The Blackbuck, once plentiful in Cholistan has now been eliminated. However, efforts are being made to reintroduce them back into the country. A small number of Blue Bulls are found along the Pak-Indian border, and some parts of Cholistan. Grey Partridge, species of Sand Grouse and the Indian Courser are the main birds of the area. Peafowl occur in some areas in Cholistan.
The Thar Desert supports a fair population of the Chinkara Gazelle. Peacocks are only found in the wild, mainly because of the protection they enjoy in Hindu communities. The wild ass migrates from the Indian part of the Rann of Kutch to the Pakistani part in search of food.
The Houbara bustard is a regular winter visitor to the desert. Visiting diplomats have hunted and reduced their numbers. The great Indian bustard is sporadically sighted. The imperial sandgrouse is another migrant visiting these areas. Grey partridges are frequently sighted. The Python is also threatened with extinction.

In The Sulaiman and Kirthar Ranges:
present habitats manifesting unique characteristics. The former supports the Straight-Horned Markhor, Chinkara and Urial, whereas Sindh Ibex, Urial, Chinkara and Common Leopard occupy the latter. The Straight-Horned Markhor, which is almost extinct from within settled boundaries of Pakistan, occurs in somewhat fair numbers in the Tribal Areas. The Chakor, Seesee and Grey Partridge are birds commonly found in the tracts..

In The South-Western Mountains of Balochistan:
are Sindh Ibex, Chiltan Markhor, Straight Horned Markhor, Wild Sheep, Leopard, Marbled Pole Cat, Blandford's Fox, Chinkara, Goitered Gazelle and the Marsh Crocodile. The Cheetah, is believed to be extinct and the Makran (baluchistan) bear critically endangered. The Houbara bustard (migratory), Sandgrouse, Black and Grey Partridges, and the Chakor and see see Partridges are also found here.

At Pakistan's Coastline of 1,050 km Consists of a Variety of Habitat Types:
Supporting a wide range of animals, of which over 1000 are fish species. Pakistan's marine flora and fauna have not been studied properly. Hence, detailed information on these species is deficient. Along the shores, there are four species of Marine Turtles: The Ridley, Green, Leather Back and Hawksbill Turtle, which are of high economic importance. Due to loss of habitat and human disturbances, their population is also decreasing.
About Eight Species of Freshwater Turtles are Found in Pakistan:
Sand Lizards, Monitors, Geckos, Agamas, Diamond Snakes, Sand Snakes, Vipers, Cobras, Kraits and the Famous Indian Python constitute the other reptilian fauna.
Other Large Water Bodies in Pakistan:
Support a variety of Waterfowl both resident and migratory. The extent of wetlands is constantly being changed. On one hand, Swamps and Marshes are being drained to reclaim land, whereas on the other hand, new dams (large water bodies) have been created for irrigation purposes. Canal irrigation through seepage has also contributed towards increasing the land area under water in the form of water logging. Such areas support a great number of Waterfowl by providing them with an excellent habitat. The wetlands are one of the most important wintering areas and "Green Routes" of Asia. The important Waterfowl in Pakistan are the Ducks (Mallard, Pintail, Shoveler, Pochard, Gargeny, Ruddy Shellduck, Teals, Tufted and Gadwall), Geese (Grey Lag, Bar-Headed), Coots, Flamingoes, Pelicans, Spoon Bills, Storks, Ibises, Plovers, Curlews, Sand Pipers, Snipes, and Herons. The Marbled Teal and White-Headed Duck have decreased in number and now visit the wetlands infrequently. Among the Waterfowl are (resident) Gallinules, Moorhens and Rails, Gulls, Terns, Water Cock, Grebes, Cormorants, Egrets, Bitterns, and Jakanas. The Spot-Billed Lesser Whistling Teal and the Cotton Teal are resident Ducks. A rich wader fauna visits the coastline during the winter.

FAST FACTS ABOUT PAKISTAN BOARS
Pakistan's total area is 803,940 s/km - Land area is 778,720 s/km, Water area is 25,220 s/km.
It's 3 times bigger than UK, 3X Italy, 10X Austria, 19X Switzerland & 26 times bigger than Belgium.
75% of our people are engaged in farming and they live in villages, country side and remote areas.
Easy access to rich crops & lack of pest control has greatly increased the population of wild boars.
97% people are Muslims & don't eat or even touch boar (pigs). This factor has also increased boars.
Wild boar destroys 30% of our national crop, so it has been officially declared as a Pest by our Govt.
Due to lack of resources, the Govt & people cannot control the ever increasing population of boars.
Hunters are considered as Heroes by the native farmers & greatly respect them for killing this pest.
To encourage hunters, our Govt levies No Permit Fee, No Bag Limit & No Fixed Hunting Season.
Best time to visit: October to March
Pakistan Boar Habitats

Pakistan Boar Habitats:
The Wild boar prefers area with think vegetation. They are found in reed beds as well as scrub and forest areas and are often found living in the vicinity of larger cities of Pakistan. In Pakistan the wild boar is common in the Indus riverine forest of river Indus throughout the provinces of Punjab and Sindh. Increased sugar plantation has increased the wild boar population in some areas of Punjab so high that they are now consider a pest. Numbers in Sindh have declined, but it is not endangered and is still found in good numbers. Wild boar are plentiful in forest plantations of Changa Manga and Piranwala. They are common in Margalla Hills and are regularly seen on the streets of Islamabad, despite government efforts to control their population. Wild boars are not found in the higher hill ranges in the north of the country.

They are rare in Kohat and Peshawar. Despite government efforts to reduce Wild boar populations, by using pesticides and hunting there has been no significant effect on the population of wild boar in Pakistan, and they are increasing in many areas of Punjab.

The word ‘mar’ and ‘khor’ is Farsi (Persian) means ‘snake’ and ‘eater’ and most writers about this wild goat make some speculative comments as to how the application arose. The name more probably arose as a corruption of the Pushto word ‘mar’ (meaning snake) and ‘akhur’ (meaning horn) – an apt allusion therefore to the serpentine shape of their horns. A larger flare-horned northern population and in the southern part of their range, a smaller variety having strait horns with a tighter twist. The distinction in typical horn shape between four relatively isolated populations surviving in Pakistan is still today easily discernible. There is considerable variation in size between the northern Himalayan population and those inhabiting the hotter drier mountain ranges to the south.

Markhor Distribution In Pakistan:
Sparsely wooded mountainous regions in the western Himalayas at an elevation of 600-3,600 m / 1,900-11,500 ft.
1 Astor Markhor:- The habitat of these animals is in the Gilgit, Skardu and Astor regions of northern Pakistan in the valleys which branch off from the River Indus. Astor Markhor is confined to Gilgit region and its real strong hold on the slopes of Nanga Parbat Massif.
2 Pir Punjal or Kashmir Markhor:- The Pir Punjal or Kashmir subspecies, occurs in Chitral from about 40 miles North of Chitral town, southwards into Dir and westwards into Swat Kohistan.
3 Suleiman Markhor:- The Sulaiman Markhor hunting is Community based conservation trophy hunting project The Sulaiman Markhor are found in the Souleiman Range in Western Central Pakistan 7 hours from Quetta.

Ibex Hunting In Pakistan

Ibex Distribution:
Both the European or Alpine population, and Himalayan population of Ibex share common certain distinguishing features. The Himalayan Ibex can be separated from the Alpine population by the horn shape which, in adult males, grows much longer, curving round to form 3/4 of a complete arc and tapering to relatively slender points.

The record horn from Pakistan measured 140cm (55 inches) and came from Gilgit. It had a basal girth of 26.5cm (10.5 inches) and a gap of 63.5cm (25 inches) between tips and certainly in Gilgit a head with horns over this length would be considered an exceptionally good trophy.

Confined to relatively arid mountain ranges of the inner Himalyas, living well above the tree line only in the higher more precipitous regions. They occur from about 3660m (12,000 feet) to over 5000m (16400 feet) in Pakistan, though they sometimes migrate from one mountain range to another in winter and in so doing have been seen crossing vallies below 2135m (7000feet).

They are fairly wide spread through the higher mountain ranges of Baltistan in the Karakoram Range, the Haramosh range, and the probably the highest population of Ibex now survives in Northern Hunza, specially in the water shed of Khunjerab, and to the east of Khunjerab. In Gilgit, they are still fairly plentiful in Ishkoman, Yasin and Hunza. Further west they occur in the Hindukush range of mountains and throughout Northern Chitral down to about 32 kilometers north of Chitral and in the higher mounain regions of Chilas and on the slopes of Malika Parbat. Saphaid Koh range in the North West Frontier Province and this is the southern most limit of its range. This is a smaller animal than the Himalayan Ibex.

Himalayan Ibex has a wider distribution and is plentiful and its future survival is not so threatened in Pakistan largely due to the inaccessibility of its haitat provided by the very extensive concentration of very high mountain ranges in the extreme north western regions. Baltistan and Hunza are undoubtedly the strong holds of the Himalayan Ibex in the region today. In the early spring the Ibex are half starved and eagerly seek new sprouting grass when it is available at lower milder elevations. This is the only time when they descend as low as 2450m (800 feet) and are thus much easier to hunt.

Urial Hunting In Pakistan

Urial Hunting Community-Based Trophy Harvesting:
Urial Distribution: In Balochistan and Wazirstan, the Urial inhabits the gentler slopes of the higher mountain ranges and will occur up to 2,750m (9,000ft) in association with scattered Juniperus macropoda forest in northern Balochistan. In Kalat, the Makran coast range and Sindh they are found in hills (upto 2,500ft), with stunted Acacia Senegal trees and Dwarf Palm..

In the Salt range and the Southern North West Frontier Province they are typically associated with lower elevation rounded stony hills dotted with wild olive and Acacia modesta. In Khyber and Malakand, and Chitral they are associated with holly oak as well as Wild Olive. The Urial is widely distributed throughout most of the higher hill ranges of Balochistan as well as Lasbela and Sindh Kohistan. In the Salt range around Tarki, north of Jhelum, Bhoun, west of Chakri, Pind Sweeka, and Arra is the best trophy fields of Pakistan.
