World Animal Day Pakistan
Pakistan is home to over 5 million working horses, mules and donkey. These poor animals work day and night to earn livelihood for millions of families at coalmines, Brickkilns, fruit and vegitable markets, transpoting passengers and industrial goods. Pakistan is also home to flora and fauna in a wide range of habitats from sea level to high elevation areas in the mountains, including 177 mammal and 660 bird species. This diverse composition of the country’s fauna is associated with its location in the transitional zone between two major zoogeographical regions, the Palearctic, and the Oriental.
