Wildlife Protection in Xinjiang Under Int'l Support
Adjust font size:

The rare wildlife in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region is resting more attention from the wildlife preservers worldwide, according to the region's environmental protection institution.


The Smithsonia's National Zoo of the United States and the Cologne Zoo of Germany have stricken an agreement with the region on conservation of Xinjiang Equus Przewalskii Poliakov, a rare species of wild horse, according to sources with the local wildlife protection institution.


The cooperation aims at rearing the Xinjiang wild horses and adapting them to natural conditions.


The two zoos donated six individuals of the rare species to Xinjiang this September. They will send more to the region in the years to follow according to the agreement.


In June this year, Xinjiang Forestry Bureau collaborated with the International Wildlife Conservation Association in investigating the habitats of Tibetan antelope. With the fist-hand investigation, experts concluded that the western area to the Kunlun Mountain is a favorable habitat for breeding Tibetan antelope.


The future international projects to be conducted in the region include joint investigation into the population of snow leopards with a US-based foundation and study of falcons with an avian study center in Britain.
