Camels are one of the world’s most easily recognisable animals, with only two subspecies – the single-humped ‘Dromedary’ camel, which is now extinct in the wild, and the highly protected two-humped Bactrian camel, whose wild numbers are facing a decimation of up to 80% over the next 15 years.
Renowned explorer, conservationist, and author John Hare joins us to hold a talk on the first ever reintroduction of the critically endangered Bactrian Camels to the Gobi desert. An incredible success story featuring adventure, danger and humour from Hare’s own Wild Camel Protection Foundation, the only charity in the world dedicated to saving this rare species, set to define the world of camel breeding and conservation for years to come.
This fascinating talk will be held on the stunning grounds of Knowsley Hall and all the proceeds will be donated to the Wild Camel Protection Foundation in aid of their efforts to protect these incredible animals.
