Présentation
Central Tian Shan belongs to the Global 200 Ecoregions list, and has a number of important areas. There are 31 endemic non-vertebrate species, and 11 endemic vascular plant species. The Central Tian Shan harbours several globally vulnerable, threatened, and endangered species including the snow leopard. At present, less than 20% of the Snow Leopard range in Central Tian Shan is under special protection ; the project implementation will increase this coverage to 48% by establishing a new State Nature Park “Khan Tengri”, strengthen the national protected areas (PA) system, and increase the overall national PA coverage from 6.03% to approximately 7%.
