Recently, nearly 10,000 Tibetan antelopes gathered in Gerze County, Ngari prefecture, Tibet. Such a large-scale gathering has been seldom seen in recent years. The spectacular scene is like the pasture overgrown with antelopes.

On the evening of March 28, Rinzin Lorbu, director of the Gerze County Forestry and Grass Bureau, introduced that the large-scale gathering of Tibetan antelopes may be due to the normal population expansion and expansion of the range of activities, rather than the annual birth migration from May to July.

Tibetan antelope is a national first-class protected animal in China, living mainly in alpine grasslands, meadows and alpine deserts at an altitude between 3,700 to 5,500 meters. They are good at running, foraging in morning and evening. The main habitats are on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, with Changtang grassland as the center. Every summer, they migrate northward along a fixed route, and return to their habitats after giving birth.
