The three educational booklets: 1. Why the Wild Camel is Critically Endangered, 2. The Wild Camel Breeding Centre in Mongolia and 3. How the Camel got its Hump, published recently by the WCPF are being used extensively in schools bordering the Lop Nur Wild Camel Nature Reserve in Xinjiang, China and the Strictly Protected Area Gobi “A” in Mongolia which is the prime wild camel habitat in both countries.
Thanks to the generosity of the Xinjiang Environmental Protection Bureau in China and the Cotswold Wildlife Park and the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in England, sets of the three booklets have been translated and published in Chinese and Mongolian. They are also published in Kazakh and Uighyur thanks again to the Xinjiang Environmental Protection Bureau.
The accompanying photos show graphically the enthusiasm of the school children in both countries for these booklets.
