Jaisalmer Camel Breeders’ Biocultural Protocol in the works

The Jaisalmer camel breeders have incredible knowledge about animal breeding annd their eco-system.

The Jaisalmeri camel breeders still have large herds of camels, in addition to keeping other types of livestock, incl. cattle, sheep and goats. They are currently establishing a Biocultural Protocol with the help of LPP’s partner organisation Lokhit Pashu-Palak Sansthan (LPPS). This process is urgent since the customary grazing areas of these communities are encroached upon rapidly –  especially by companies that seek to generate alternative energies (wind and solar).
