A staff member works on the dried land at a national nature reserve for milu deer, or Père David's deer, in Shishou, central China's Hubei Province, May 30, 2011. A lingering drought has affected some 400 milu deer in the nature reserve. Staff members built up more than 30 flumes to provide milu with water. Rainfall along the lower and middle reaches of the Yangtze has been at its lowest since 1951, down 40 to 60 percent from the average level, the Office of State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters (SFDH) said.
