Data from images captured along the Nujiang River valley in Dengchen county, Tibet autonomous region, shows that the area is a good ecosystem for at least six types of carnivores, the Shanshui Conservation Center said.
 
Starting out as a trial project in 2017, the center and the county's forestry and grassland bureau have carried out biodiversity surveys in the valley to investigate the area's ecosystem.
 
"Since 2018, local Tibetan herders have been trained as ecological monitors, and nearly 50 remote cameras have been placed at strategic points within an area covering more than 1,000 square kilometers along the Nujiang River valley," said Zhao Xiang, director of the center, adding the ecosystem in the area is healthy.
