Tents Erected To Shelter Pregnant Antelopes

PRESERVATIONISTS in Hoh Xil National Nature Reserve in Qinghai Province said yesterday they have set up several big tents on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau region, to help pregnant Tibetan antelopes give birth in harsh weather.

Wang Zhoutai, chief of the Protection and Management Office at the reserve, said they have monitored 1,000 pregnant antelopes on the banks of Zonag Lake, where the tents were set up 4,700 meters above sea level to shelter the animals.

"Snowstorms were frequent in the area recently. These antelopes have traveled a long way on migration to reach the place to give birth," he said.
