Parturient antelopes in the Hoh Xil region are migrating to the hinterland of the Hoh Xil National Nature Reserve earlier than usual this year, the administrative bureau of the reserve told Xinhua journalists. Aiming to ensure that the antelopes are able to give birth in safety, a "Convoy Campaign" is around the corner in the Hoh Xil.

According to a report disclosed by the Zhuonai Lake Protection Station of the Bureau, so far about 200 antelopes have reached the hinterland of the reserve by the Zhounai Lake, says Cai Danzhou, director of the bureau. With the guidance of the "Convoy Campaign" implemented by the bureau, anti-poaching patrols are being organized to protect the antelopes in their migration routes, and experts and workers of the Zhuonai Hu Stations are being sent to the fertility area of the antelopes for surveillance and protection.

From June to July, antelopes migrate to the regions near the Zhounai Lake, the Sun Lake and the Xijir Ulan Lake in the Hoh Xil Nature Reserve and breed their young. About one month later, they return to nature reserves in the Qiangtang region of Tibet, the Altun Mountains of Xinjiang and the Three Rivers Source of Qinghai. It is planned that the "Convoy Campaign" will last to the end of August.
