    Located in the northern part of Tibet Autonomous Region, Changtang National Nature Reserve is one of the largest protected areas in the world, covering 298 thousand square kilometers. At present, about 200 thousand Tibetan antelopes live there.

     

    The Tibetan antelope comes under China’s first-level protection. It has also been listed on Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) since 1979. Over the years, thanks to strong protection of the government, the Tibetan antelope population has recovered gradually. Therefore, it’s now officially removed from the endangered species list.

     

    Known as fairy of plateau, Tibetan antelope mainly inhabits in Tibet, Qinghai and Western Xinjiang, and the majority of which are found in Changtang National Nature Reserve of Northern Tibet. What’s more, those Tibetan antelopes in Changtang Nature Reserve are mainly distributed in Amdo, Nyima and Tsonyi County of Nagchu Prefecture.
