Tibetan antelopes have completed their three-month-long migration and delivery in Hoh Xil nature reserve.
Tibetan antelopes have completed their three-month-long migration and delivery in the northwestern part of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau this year, according to local authority.
Nearly 20,000 Tibetan antelopes have migrated to the hinterland of Hoh Xil Natural Reserve to give birth. After a period of feeding, Tibetan antelopes began to go back to to Tibet, Qinghai Province or the western part of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. As of now, Tibetan antelope have all moved back from their "delivery room".
Due to glaciers receding, precipitation increasing and other phenomena caused by climate warming, the Zonag Lake, which is known as the species' "delivery room", and other lakes swelled, and the migration of the antelopes has been influenced by a certain degree, according to Xiao Penghu, deputy chief of the Hoh Xil nature reserve administration.
Staff of the administration and volunteers have paid close attention to the migration process and offered help by means of satellite positioning and monitoring.【1】 【2】
