What Is Happening To Save Markhors
Some countries are opening parks for markhors. Unfortunately, other countries are slower to respond to the animals plight even though the beautiful wild goat serves as Pakistans national animal, it's still legally being hunted in the country. We could help by growing more vegetation around the countries that they live in. We could also make it illegal to hunt Markhors.
Make Killing Markhors Illegal
Another way we could save the markhor is by making a law that you can't kill them and put them on the endangered species list.
