WILD CAMEL PROTECTION FOUNDATION
The Wild Camel Protection Foundation ( WCPF), a United Kingdom registered charity, with Dr. Jane Goodall DBE as its Honorary Life Patron, was established in 1997. It is also registered in the USA as a non-profit organisation. The sole aim of the Wild Camel Protection Foundation is to protect the critically endangered double-humped wild camel (Camelus ferus) and its habitat in the fragile and unique desert ecosystems in the Gobi desert in north-west China and south-west Mongolia. It is the only charitable environmental Foundation in the world which has this exclusive objective. The WCPF has raised funds from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Global Environment Facility (GEF), and from international organisations, private foundations, individuals, companies and dedicated WCPF members. The WCPF is continuously fund-raising and organising activities to raise much needed funds to continue its vital work.
