Markhor, a near-extinct species included in the Red Book of the International Union for the Protection of Nature and Natural Resources, is found in the mountains on the right bank of the Amudarya and Pyandzh and the Kugitangtau Mountains. In Tajikistan the remaining population of mountain goats is confined to a very small area.
