The wild camel is the eighth most endangered large mammal on the planet. It is critically endangered. There are approximately 600 in the Gobi desert in north-west China and approximately 450 in the desert in Mongolia. The Wild Camel Protection Foundation (WCPF) is the ONLY charity in the world with a SPECIFIC mission to save this remarkable creature and its pristine desert environment from extinction and destruction.
Critically Endangered (IUCN 3.1)
IUCN Red List
- It costs $2,500 a month to run the MONGOLIAN BREEDING CENTRE. The work is vital to protect the wild camel’s unique genetic make-up and covers salaries of the Manager, Herdsman, and Vet.
- It costs $10,000 every September to provide HAY for the wild camels at the Breeding Centre to survive the long, harsh winter.
- We need $25,000 for a WILD CAMEL EDUCATION PROGRAMME in China and Mongolia.
Please indicate whether your donation should go to BREEDING CENTRE , HAY or EDUCATION PROGRAMME
