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
discovered two unmapped valleys and a spring holding naïve populations
of wildlife.
He established a UK charity www.wildcamels.com to protect the wild
camel and in 2008 it was recognised as a new and separate species.
He has also crossed the Sahara with camels and has taken camels
around Lake Turkana in Kenya to raise awareness of the wild camel.
