A wildlife research center has been set up at the Hol Xil Natural Reserve in Qinghai province on the Tibet-Qinghai Plateau.

The center, the highest in the country, is jointly set up by the Institute of Zoology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Hol Xil Natural Reserve Administration. It is located at the Wudaoliang wildlife protection station, where Tibetan antelopes cross Qinghai-Tibet railway during annual migration.

The site is expected to attract more researchers to the area with its better technical and logistic support, said Cega, director of the Administration.

Scientists from CAS will carry out research on the breeding of rare animals and human activities' impact on wildlife, Cega said.
