Recently, the "Beauty of the Wild, the Convention on Biological Diversity 
Photographic Exhibition", hosted by the Beijing Representative Office of the 
National Geographic Society (USA), was launched. The Milu deer photographic 
work from Yang Guomei, President of Dafeng District Photographers Association 
was selected into the exhibition. The Dafeng wetland in Jiangsu has given birth 
to a rich and unique ecosystem, and Milu deer, the "wetland elves", has 
attracted the attention of the world again, according to the Publicity 
Department of Dafeng District People's Government.

When COP 15 was held in Kunming, the exhibition attracted wide attention. A 
total of more than 30 nature photos taken in recent years were on display to 
show the beauty of wildlife in China's national parks and reserves, hoping to 
draw public attention to the protection of species diversity. Milu deer from 
Dafeng have become a typical representative of attaching importance to 
biodiversity conservation in China.

The photographs in the exhibition show the happy scene of Milu deer crossing 
the water in Chinese Milu National Nature Reserve. The area is rich in 
ecological resources. Over the years, the sustainable construction has 
maintained the integrity of the natural ecosystem, protected biodiversity, 
promoted natural ecological protection and harmonious symbiosis between man and 
nature. At present, Dafeng wetland has created five "best in the world", i.e., 
the largest Milu deer nature reserve, the largest Milu deer population, the 
most complete Milu deer gene bank, the largest wild Milu deer population, and 
the largest artificially domesticated Milu deer population in the world.

Yang Guomei has been following Milu deer for 35 years and is known as "the 
first person in Chinese Milu deer photography". He uses images to save the rare 
species and has published a number of collections of Milu deer themed 
photographs. More than 500 Milu deer-themed photographic works have won awards 
or exhibited in international film festivals in 76 countries and regions. 
Migratory Bird Sanctuaries along the Coast of Yellow Sea-Bohai Gulf of China 
(Phase I) has been listed as a World Natural Heritage site, and his works have 
frequently appeared in the process of applying, building a bridge between the 
Yellow Sea wetland in Yancheng and the world.
