In the Gobi there are rock carvings and images of the numerous animals which used to live in this part of Mongolia – some of which, such as deer, are endangered species.
Monday 11th April, the day when the new crescent moon hung in the sky was deemed an auspicious day. Many Mongolians believe it is good to start new ventures on such a day; among them “Erdenet” LLC, which organized the relocation of four male and six female deer to the mountain in the “GoviGurvanSaikhan” (Three Beauties of the Gobi) national park. Before the new arrivals, only two deer remained.
Member of Parliament D.Bat-Erdene, the head of the Umnugovi (South Gobi) Provincial Civil Assembly, L.Batchuluun, Deputy Governor D.Natsagdorj the General Director of Erdenet LLCTs.Davaatseren and local people participated in the ceremony marking the arrival of the new deer.
The local provincial administration has worked hard and done much to solve the urgent and practical issues to ensure a future for the deer population in the national park. One such action was giving a “Jawa” motorcycle to deer-herder MrD.Bum, who will be responsible for taking care of the new herd of deer in this special and beautiful part of Mongolia.
