What is the animal Musk deer known for?

The musk deer is an animal that is known for its musk gland, which produces a substance called natural musk.
Natural musk is a highly valued ingredient in traditional East Asian medicine and perfumery, as it is believed to have various health benefits and a pleasant aroma.

However, the musk deer is also endangered by habitat destruction and illegal hunting, as the musk gland can only be obtained by killing the animal.
The demand for natural musk has led to a drastic decline in the population of musk deer, especially in China, India, and Nepal.

To protect the musk deer and its habitat, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is working with local communities and governments to promote sustainable use of natural resources, combat poaching and trafficking, and raise awareness about the conservation of this unique animal.
