Breeding migration for Tibetan antelopes ends

The annual breeding migration of Tibetan antelopes ended recently. According to statistics, more than 3,600 female Tibetan antelopes entered Zhuonai Lake in the Hoh Xili hinterland via the Qinghai-Tibet Railway and Qinghai-Tibet Highway.

According to Gama Yingpei, deputy head of the Wudaoliang Conservation Station of the Hoh Xili Management Office of Sanjiangyuan National Park in Qinghai Province, the migration of the first 43 Tibetan antelopes began on April 30 this year, which is earlier than last year.

Gama Yingpei said, “In order to protect the migration of Tibetan antelopes from human interference, the staff of the Conservation Station ride motorcycles to patrol the migration sections. During the migration, temporary traffic control measures are adopted to ensure the safety of the Tibetan antelopes.”

Official statistics show the number of Tibetan antelopes that currently inhabit Hoh Xili, Qinghai is close to 70,000. After preservation measures were put in place, there hasn’t been a poaching incident in Hoh Xili in 11 years.
