Always a great sight, especially when their silhouette with the distinctive horns shows on the top of mountain ridges. Argali, the wild mountain sheep (Ovis ammon) ranges across Central Asian countries, China, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Mongolia. The Argali population in Western Mongolia is believed to have decreased while the species has expanded more into the Eastern parts of the country. Rolling hills and mountain ranges are the typical habitat for these wild sheep. They exist in isolated areas of Mongolia's Gobi, both in the ranges that make up the Southeastermost reaches of the Gobi Altai as well as in mountains that sit like islands surrounded by desert plains. This sighting here was in such a mountain in Mongolia's South Gobi where we watched the animal making its way up the rocky side of a mountain until it appeared against the horizon. Remote and wild, these areas are not part of national protected areas but all across the country local communities and local governments make efforts to set aside natural landscapes as Local Protected Areas, a status that enables local authorities to defend wildlife habitat and scenic  areas against mining interests. #argali #mountains #mountainsheep #Gobi #wildlife #nationalparks #conservation #welivetoexplore #wildernessculture #wilderness #keepitwild #desert #habitat #protectwildlife #landscapes #scenic #wild #adventuretravel #greentravel #ecotourism #ecotours #responsibletravel #defendwildlife #protectedareas #travelmore #mongolia #experiencemongolia #wildlifetours #exploremore
