BEIJING - Beijing's Daxing District and ecological researchers have planned to recommend Milu deer as the mascot for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, the Beijing Youth Daily reported Tuesday.
The Nanhaizi area of suburban Beijing enjoys an unparalleled position in the history of the milu, a native species of deer that all but faced extinction, and a huge significance in the promotion of milu culture, says Guo Geng, the curator of the Nanhaizi Milu Park Museum.
With its miraculous twists and turns, the fate of the China's milu deer has long been an intriguing prospect for researchers and animal lovers alike.
Daxing district in the southern part of Beijing has become a livable industrialized area with a friendly environment, thanks to the city's efforts in environmental protection over the past few years.
