More rare animals spotted in NW China nature reserve
LANZHOU, June 11 (Xinhua) -- Infrared cameras have captured an increasing amount of activity from rare animals at a national nature reserve in northwest China's Gansu Province.
Recent footage from the Gansu Annanba Wild Camel National Nature Reserve recorded a snow leopard, wild camels and goitered gazelles, the reserve's management authority said.
It is the second time a snow leopard was captured by cameras in the reserve, with the last time being in 2014.
The snow leopard is a Class A protected animal in China and is classified as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
From the footage retrieved from April 28 to May 19, researchers also found obviously increasing populations and activity of rare animals including wild camels, goitered gazelles, red foxes and lynxes.
Over 30 infrared cameras had been installed by the reserve since May to regularly monitor wild animals. Enditem
