Ecologically MCA has a diverse range of habitats that boasts much rare flora and fauna such as Snow leopard, Lynx, Musk deer, Red fox, Jackal, Brown bear, and their prey species such as Blue sheep, Himalayan tahr, Himalayan serow, Wooly hare and Himalayan marmot. It is also home to a variety of birds like Snow partridge, Tibetan snowcock, Chukar partridge, Himalayan griffon, and Golden eagle, among others, including diverse plant communities.
The culture of the people in the region is equally unique with most people of Tibetan origin following Buddhism. Economically, the people rely on agriculture and animal husbandry system and are very dependent on natural
resources for firewood, timber, and medicinal plants.
The rich cultural heritage is evident in the several large Buddhist monasteries. Local examples of the harmony between religion and environmental conservation can be seen throughout the region, as Lamas (religious leaders) from the monasteries prohibit any kind of violence against wildlife. This has been hugely consequential in the prosperity of wildlife in MCA.
