Date to be confirmed – Travelling with Camels – John Hare
John Hare will be giving an illustrated talk on his three wild camel surveys in the Gobi Desert which were undertaken in 1999, 2005 and 2011.
John has led seven expeditions into Mongolia and Chinese Gobi to study
the critically endangered Wild Camel. He was the first foreigner to visit
Kop Nur (a nuclear test area) for over 45 years and the first foreigner in
recorded history to cross the Gashun Gobi from north to south. He also

He has also crossed the Sahara with camels and has taken camels
around Lake Turkana in Kenya to raise awareness of the wild camel.
