The Wild Camel Protection Foundation has been established to raise funds to protect the critically endangered wild camel in its habitat in North-west China and Mongolia. There are approximately 900 left in the world and it is more endangered than the giant Panda. The Foundation with the approval of the Chinese government has established the Lop Nur Wild Camel National Nature Reserve in the Gobi desert and a wild camel breeding centre in Mongolia.
The aim of the Reserve is to protect the wild camel and the unique desert eco-system in which it lives. The Chinese government has agreed to fund the annual running costs provided that the capital costs can be raised. The Reserve will also act as a pilot scheme for the Jane Goodall Institute’s, Roots and Shoots environmental awareness-raising campaign throughout China.
