Wildlife caught on camera in Xinjiang's Altai Mountains

Red deer, sables and wild rabbits were caught on special infrared cameras installed in Altai Mountains, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The Chinese section of the mountain range, located in Fuyun County, treasures a prodigious wealth of biodiversity.

These animals are under state-level protection. "In recent years, continuous efforts in environment protection have increased the number of protected wild animals in the Fuyun forest area, and the habitat area of wild animals also expanded a great deal," said Duan Xuejun, an engineer with the Forest Protection Department of the Altai Mountains State Forest Management Administration.
