London Zoo plays a vital role in global conservation

Camel conservation

Wild camels are a high priority EDGE mammal – meaning that they are classed as Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered. 

Hunting, pollution, illegal mining and human/animal conflict have all caused big problems for this amazing species, and ZSL works in Mongolia to help to conserve them.
