By B. Khuder
Ulaanbaatar, September 11 (MONTSAME) The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Mongolia to the United Kingdom Mr N.Tulga participated in a charity event organized last weekend in Kent county by the Wild Camel Protection Foundation (WCPF).
It attracted diplomats of the Mongolian Embassy in the UK and Mongolians in the country. They organized a small festival of Mongolian national sports, concert and a fair of Mongolian cuisine for guests. Revenues earned from the event will be donated to the foundation in order to buy fodder for some 400 heads of wild camels in Mongolia.
The WCPF, a UK 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 organization. The sole aim of the WCPF is to protect the critically endangered wild camel (Camelus ferus) and its habitat in the fragile and unique desert ecosystems in the Gobi desert in north-west China and in 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.
In 2003, the WCPF opened a breeding center for wild camel in Mongolian Gobi protected area with support of the Ministry of Environment. This foundation works to raise money for breeding the animal because GBP 2,500 is required every month for operating the breeding center normally, GBP 10 thousand every September--for preparing hay and fodder, and GBP 25 thousand--for the educational programme.
