World Camels’ Day and The Ghan’s Camels


Being part of the Ghans, it gives me immense pleasure having pictures of camels from Australia. The Afghan people introduced camel in Australia, so they call it animal of Ghan. Ghan is also very famous train route crossing the central desert of Australia. The camels were used that time to install the railway and telephone lines. After the automobile revolution, the camels were gradually left in the rangelands because of very little use in the country for work.

The camel looks like Kohi camel of Suleiman Mountainous region of Pakistan.

Once the Australian government decided to decrease the number of camels and started killing this precious animals.. With the concerns of the international camel community (author was part of this struggle), some people and organizations came forward to bring this animal into hobbling and food production systems (meat and milk). My friend Paul has sent me the pictures of his camels brought from the jungle. He is bringing camels from feral, train them and use for milk or gift to friends. Thanks Pol for such a precious gift at the eve of the World Camel Day (22 June).
