The population of golden deer has increased by almost 250 this year compared with the same period of last year at the Chutthin Wildlife Sanctuary in Kanbalu township, Sagaing Region, said an official from Chutthin Wildlife Sanctuary.
According to the survey which was conducted in March, 728 golden deer are found in the wildlife sanctuary. There were only 480 golden deer in April, 2016.
“This year, the local hunters cooperate with the authorities in golden deer conservation. Previously, we found many snares in the sanctuary. But, we don’t find any snare this year. The population of golden deer has increased because of improvement of the environmental conservation,” said the official.
The official from Chutthin Wildlife Sanctuary attributed the increase in deer population to the proper supervision and the assistance of the Sagaing Region government.— 200
