Central Asia is home to some of the most spectacular and ecologically important mammal migrations in the world. Dubbed the “Serengeti of the North”, the vast deserts, semi‑deserts, grasslands and high mountains of Central Asia and adjacent regions, support some of the world’s last remaining large mammal migrations. However, those migrations are in peril as poaching, illegal trade, habitat loss, infrastructure development and barriers to migration, as well as disease, and climate change are challenging their very existence.
