Background: The Takatu Range is an ideal habitat for Suleman Markhor, Afghan Urial and associated biodiversity in the arid ecosystem in Pakistan. The area is famous for its richness in flora and fauna of arid ecosystem in the region. Traditionally people were fond of hunting for leisure and subsistence needs. However, presently there is a negative impact on the biodiversity of area due to increase in human population and excessive use of natural resources by the community. Illegal poaching/hunting, mostly by influential people, in the project area is a big threat for the remaining population of Suleman Markhor and Afghan Urial. Part of the project area is state forest managed by the Forest Department, according to an agreement arrived with the local tribes during the British Rule. The local communities have certain rights of taking natural resources and visit the habitat. Due to increase in human population, the people mostly use it for collection of fuel wood, medicinal plants as well as grazing more than its carrying capacity. As a result, the status of flora and fauna is degrading and habitat can not sustain even the remaining animals. A few individuals from the area help the poachers for illegal hunting of Markhor, Urial and partridges. Threats: The two species have suffered heavy their habitat due to the following: decline as well as Decline in effectiveness of the Forest
