Sixty percent of world’s elks reside in east China’s nature reserve. The number of elks has increased to 4,101 in China. In addition, the number of wild elks has increased to 846 in the reserve. Elks, also known as "Milu Deer" or "Pere David's deer", have been listed as the first-class national protected animals in China. In recent years, workers in the nature reserve have made specific plans to protect elks and been devoted to launching scientific research on how to artificially raise elks.
