Qinghai-Tibet Railway builds harmonious link between wildlife, human
font size    

Thanks to China's environment protection efforts, endangered Tibetan antelopes and other wildlife species can live in harmony amid booming tourism with the operation of Qinghai-Tibet Railway.

The wild animals in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau are getting used to the railway, on which a pair of trains ran on Saturday to their destinations of Lhasa, capital of Tibet Autonomous Region and Golmud in Qinghai Province.

The trains started out from Lhasa and Golmud Saturday morning and are expected to arrive in the terminals on early Sunday morning.

Some lucky travelers witnessed herds of Tibetan antelopes browsing or leisurely roaming in the Hoh Xil preserve in Qinghai thanks to special passageways established for their smooth migration.

The Tibetan antelope, an endangered species at the top of China 's protection list, native to the grasslands of northwestern Qinghai Province, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, and Tibet, will no longer face the Qinghai-Tibet Railway as an obstacle on their migration route, said an official with the Hoh Xil Nature Reserve Administration.

The 33 passageways built for migrating animals will enable antelopes and other animals pass the Qinghai-Tibet railway freely. According to officials with Wudaoliang station in the Hoh Xil preserve, thousands of pregnant antelopes have been seen crossing the railway via special passages before the railway's operation.
