(ECNS) -- Five rescued Tibetan antelopes were released back to nature on Wednesday at Suonandajie protection station in Hoh Xil National Nature Reserve, Northwest China's Qinghai.
Before the release, the antelopes were tied with Hadas, the traditional ceremonial scarf used for blessing in China's Tibet and Mongolia.
The eldest Tibetan antelope was saved four years ago.
The other four young antelopes were sent to the protection station in 2019. They are fully capable of living by themselves in the wild now after two years of feeding.
The Suonandajie protection station shoulders the responsibility of anti-poaching and wild animals rescue.
In every breeding season, the station will save several abandoned or lost antelope cubs and take good care of them.
Poaching cases have been reduced year by year due to strict crackdown and protection of the patrollers of Hoh Xil National Nature Reserve.
Since 2009, this famous no-man's land in China has been reporting no poaching for 11 consecutive years, and the population of Tibetan antelopes here has reached more than 70,000.
The Suonandajie protection station has saved more than 600 wild animals and released over 50 Tibetan antelopes so far.
