Animal Protection

Several species of wildlife living on the windswept Tibetan plateau have increased in number over the past decade, due to better enforcement by wildlife officials.
With the alias of Longhorn Antelope, Tibetan Antelope belongs to the Bovidae family of Artiodactyla order. Its scientific name is Pantholops hodgsoni (Latin), or Tibetan Antelope.
As a rare species of wild animals exclusively existing on Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in China, Tibetan antelope (Pantholops hodgsoni) belongs to Grade I animal under state protection and is listed as an endangered species in 2000.
With the rapid growth of both social and economic in Tibet, how to protect wildlife has become a world wide concern. Now, a wildlife protection station is ready to put into use in Dagze County this year. This will greatly improve the course of wildlife protection in Tibet.
