China is working to establish a new model of national park, with much higher standards that the current protected areas of the Chinese nation. The first national park would be Sanjiangyuan, one huge area located in Northern Tibet that would protect about a thousand of snow leopards, tibetan antilopes, wild yaks. The area is currently protected as a nature reserve. It is one site where the Panthera NGO is working to conserve the mighty cat. I have been really close to the area in 2011, I saw huge herds of chiru and tibetan gazelles, tibetan foxes and tibetan wolves. https://news.mongabay.com/2017/05/chinas-first-national-park-an-experiment-in-living-with-snow-leopards/
