In April 2018, Rosa Nielson who looks after Bactrian camels at the Copenhagen Zoo in Denmark is walking from Saint Pied de Prot in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain to raise money for the wild camels. The length of her journey is 800 kms and she intends to walk 26 kms each day. It will take her 30 days and she plans to walk during the whole month of April reaching Compostela in early May.
All the money she raises will go directly to WCPF work at our breeding centre in Mongolia and this is a MAGNIFICENT UNDERTAKING on the part of Rosa and the Director of Copenhagen Zoo for which we are deeply grateful.
Details of her walk are:
- 7th to the 9th. of April: St Jean Pied De Port – Larrasoana
- 24th to 25th of April: Puente Villarente – Astorga
- 4th to 5th of May: Salceda to Santiago De Compostela (25,8km)
Our Spanish colleague Alejandro Llop will be meeting her at these points to keep us posted on the progress of her journey and to take photographs.
PLEASE SUPPORT ROSA BY DONATING TOWARDS HER MAGNIFICENT WALK FOR THE WILD CAMELS
