Nov. 28, 2017 -- Any unit or individual will be prohibited to enter the three major nature reserves and carry out activities without the permission, according to a joint notice issued by Hoh Xil Nature Reserve in Qinghai, Altun Shan Nature Reserve in Xinjiang and Chang Tang Nature Reserve in Tibet.
As the largest group of nature reserves in China, the three major reserves are important habitats for rare and endangered animals on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau including wild yaks, Tibetan antelopes and white-lipped deer, which also play an important role in the protection of natural environment, biological diversity and scientific research.
In recent years, some outdoor explorers have entered the nature reserves without permission and caused harm to the habitats for the wild animals.
According to Karma Tseten, director of the Hoh Xil Nature Reserve Administration, the joint notice is aimed to crack down illegal crossing and mining.
Any unit or individual who breaks the rules and causes damage to the natural resources and ecological environment will be punished by the Public Security Organs.
