Arjinshan is one of the primary ranges of Tibetan antelopes in the world and it has been threatened by livestock farming activities since the end of last century. In recent years, farmers gradually relocated themselves to lower altitudes out of the reserve, yet left about 6,000 acres of land enclosed by artificial fences. The remains of the fences are still threatening the survival of many wild animals by either barring their entry to feeding grounds or from migrating to their breeding destination.

Despite repeated requests and an application made under the Freedom of Information Act, the zoos have refused to reveal to the NGOs the answers they gave to the Australian Department of Environment and Heritage (DEH) in response to questions about their permit application.

"We simply cannot understand why the zoos will not provide us with the information we have asked for-if it answers all the questions asked by the Government then why not share it with the community?" said Rebecca Brand of IFAW Asia Pacific.
