Newborn Tibetan antelopes return home
Beijing: Tibetan antelopes born since the start of this month are starting to return to their natural habitat, reports Xinhua.
Since the end of May, about 35,000 female Tibetan antelopes from northwest and southwest China have gathered at the bank of Zonag Lake in Hoh Xil, a desolate area in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, to give birth.
"The pregnant antelopes have given birth to over 16,000 calves this year," said Xiao Penghu of the Hoh Xil National Nature Reserve Administration.
As more of the antelopes are returning home to join their male counterparts, conservation stations have been set up to monitor their migration and ensure their safety while traveling across the Qinghai-Tibet railway and highway.
