IYAK is a truly unique and valuable herd. UINC estimates indicate Tibetan wild yak are "Vulnerable" and dropping 2% per year (2014), and new counts suggest wild yak may already be endangered. IYAK may soon be the last strong hold of the original, ancient and pure genetics (if we continue to protect it)!
