Wild camel

    The critically endangered wild Camel lives the barren Gobi Desert of China and Mongolia.

    Wild Camel Protection Foundation

    Since 2003, Wild Camel Protection Foundation runs a breeding center for wild Camels in the buffer zone of Great Gobi Strictly Protected Area ”A” in Mongolia, as a precaution in case the species becomes extinct in the wild. Wild Camels born at the center are reintroduced to the protected area and the animals receive a GPS-transmitter so they can be monitored after the release.

    An additional breeding center is being built

    To further strengthen the wild population an additional breeding center is now being built in Soum, a neighboring area. Kolmården Foundation helps to fund the education and training of new staff.
