As part of the preparations for the conference “Camel Cultures: Historical traditions, present threats and future prospects” there will be a half-day mini-conference at SOAS next month, on the afternoon of Wednesday 26 May. This will give a general introduction to camel cultures worldwide. It will also focus on specific areas of problems – for instance the survival of Wild Bactrians in Mongolia. And it will present a summary of the Country Situation Reports which our colleagues in camel research have kindly sent to us.
