Camels at the crossroads

Camels are the focus of the January 2005 edition of the New Agriculturist, an online magazine on agricultural development.

Articles by New Agriculturist reporter Susie Emmett cover the decline of camels in Rajasthan in western India, and their rising popularity in Kenya; the health benefits and market potential of camel milk; and the working camels of India and the racing camels of the Gulf.

Several of these articles are based on papers presented at the international conference on Saving the Camel and People’s Livelihoods, held on 23-25 November at Sadri, Rajasthan. This conference was hosted by Lokhit Pashu-Palak Sansthan as part of the LIFE Initiative.
