update:March 18,2020
March 18,2020 -- In recent years, Tibet has made remarkable achievements in protecting wild animals. The number of protected species has seen a significant rise.
The number of Tibetan antelope has increased from 50,000 to 200,000. The Equus kiang population has risen from 50,000 to 90,000 and the number of black-necked crane has grown from 1,000 to 8,000.
During the second survey of wild animals in Tibet, apart from the 150 species of regular wild animals, new species like Xiyamahara spearhead viper and Amolops chayuensis sp. nov were discovered.
Tibet has promulgated new laws and regulations on protecting local natural resources and strengthened publicity to enhance people’s awareness of wild animal protection. The autonomous region has held many activities featuring World Animal Day and World Environment Day. 
Since 2010, Tibet has invested 1.3 billion yuan in infrastructure construction at nature reserves and wetlands as well as the rescue and breeding of rare wild animals. In the future, Tibet will enhance wildlife disease monitoring and warning mechanism as well as the implementation of laws on wild animal protection.
