RELEASE OF WILD CAMELS BACK INTO THE GOBI DESERT

On September 20th 2013, the first release took place of wild camels back into the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. Two adult bull camels were released at Bogts Tsagaan Ders water point in the Great Gobi Strictly Protected Area ‘A’, the habitat of the wild camel in Mongolia. Before the release the two bull camels were collared for remote sensing by Professor Liu Shaochuang of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Remote Sensing. This cooperation between the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Mongolian Academy of Sciences is to be greatly welcomed and is a positive result of the initiative in 2000 by the WCPF in obtaining a Letter of Intent from both the Mongolian and Chinese governments to work jointly to protect the critically endangered wild camel.
