Beijing, Aug 9 (IANS) The population of endangered Tibetan antelope has increased to 120,000 in a China nature reserve due to better protection, a media report said Thursday.

The population of other wild animals such as Tibetan gazelle, Tibetan wild donkey and yak in the reserve are also increasing due to tight vigil, the People’s Daily reported.
