    Each winter, batches of black-necked cranes migrate to the middle and southern part of Tibet Autonomous Region as their habitats which have been effectively improved thanks to the governments' efforts and the locals' enhanced awareness in improving ecological environment.

     

    The endangered wild birds, which are native to the plateau and listed under key state protection, are favored by Tibetans and therefore called "saint bird of the snow land".

     

    According to the white paper on Development and Progress of Tibet issued this October, Tibet has effectively protected its biodiversity and significant eco-function zones. The number of black-necked cranes in Tibet reaches about 7,000.
