Wild camels are Critically Endangered, one of the most at-risk land mammals in the world. They are completely genetically distinct from the camels you can see at Knowsley Safari.
Knowsley Safari have signed a five-year agreement with The Wild Camel Protection Foundation to help conserve this amazing species. We work on the ground in the Gobi Desert, supporting the management of the only captive population of wild camels in the world. Work ranges from tagging and health checking calves to fixing fences and researching camel behaviour. Careful management of a captive population leads to healthy, sustainable and genetically diverse animals who may be suitable for future conservation action, for example release.
