LHASA, March 3 --March 3 marks the annual World Wildlife Day. This year, the theme is "Recovering key species for ecosystem restoration."
 
In southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, wildlife there now enjoys more natural space thanks to the notable progress in wildlife protection over the years.
 
According to the data from local environment authorities, Tibet has so far built 47 nature reserves measuring a total area of 412,200 square km, which accounts for more than one-third of the region's total.
 
The region's wild ass population has risen to nearly 90,000 from the previous 50,000.
 
The population of black-necked cranes has jumped to about 8,000 from the previous 1,000 to 3,000.
 
The population of Tibetan antelopes has grown from 50,000 to more than 300,000, while the population of wild yak reaches more than 10,000.  
 
Last year, China downgraded the status of Tibetan antelopes from "endangered" to "near threatened" thanks to active anti-poaching and biodiversity protection efforts.
 
Tibet spent 20.23 billion yuan (about 3.1 billion U.S. dollars) in ecological protection from 2016 to 2020, more than doubling the spending for the previous five years.
