Pashmina or Changthangi Goat (capra hircus laniger) is native to the Himalayas. They are acclimated to the high altitudes and cold climate of the Lakakhi Chanthangi or Baltistan (Kashmir region). They were used as pack animals and as a source of some of the finest cashmere wool. They must live in harsh, windy climates to generate the soft undercoat, for which demand has always exceeded supply. Experts say their numbers are dwindling which led to the cloning of the first Pashmina goat…

Satyr Tragopan: The Satyr Tragopan is a rare resident pheasant which occurs at high elevations in the Himalaya. Male Satyr's are 68cm and are a bright crimson red with white spots. Females are smaller and less conspicuous. Tragopans are often called “horned pheasants” because they display horn-like projections during courtship. 4 out of the 5 known species occur in India. The Satyr is faced with habitat destruction and hunting pressure and is now considered to be near-threatened.

The leatherback sea turtle (Dermochelys coriacea), sometimes called the lute turtle, is the largest of all living sea turtles and the fourth largest modern reptile behind three crocodilians. It can easily be differentiated from other modern sea turtles by its lack of a bony shell. Instead, its carapace is covered by skin and oily flesh. Leatherbacks have been viewed as unique among reptiles for their ability to maintain high body temperatures using metabolically generated heat, or…
