The rare Indian swimming camels under threat – BBC News



The Kharai are a rare breed of camel found in the salt marshes of Kutch district in the western state of Gujarat, India.

They swim up to three kilometres in the shallow seas to reach their grazing land – the region’s mangroves. But now local herdsmen say it’s taking longer and getting harder to find mangroves where camels can graze.

They claim salt companies are blocking tidal waters and slowly drying up the mangroves. This is endangering the lives of the camels as well as their future.

  1. Indian govt is killing Dalits Muslims Christians I don't think a camel breed would.make any difference 🤔 really sad .

  2. Salt companies should be reprimanded but locals can help as well by planting mangroves.its their camels after all.
