    Passive voice, under and by

    Hi,

    "At present, five species of musk deer are protected from hunting under the Chinese Wild Animal Protection Law 2003 as a Category I key species."

    Is there any agent in the above sentance? can i say that "the law" is the agent that protect the deer?

    Can I rewrite the sentence as
    "The Chinese Wild Animal Protection Law 2003 protects five species of musk deer from hunting under as a Category I key species" ?

    Thanks.

    Yes, you can. You will see 'protected by law' used as well.
