ZSL Wild Camel Campaign

The training on “Methods and Tools of interactive EEC for Eco-Clubs in Gobi” under component 4 of the GIZ SPACES project has been conducted on 7-18 Oct, 2023.  The training took place in six different soums in the buffer zone area of Protected Area Gobi A, namely, Shinejinst and Bayan-Undur soums of Bayankhongor aimag, Erdene, Bayan-Tooroi (village), Altai and Tsogt soums of Gobi-Altai aimag. 

MGM partners Zoological Society London (ZSL), Ecological Education Center of the Mongolian National University (EEC-NUM), and People Centered Conservation (PCC) conducted the training as part of the My Green Mongolia campaign. It was part of the Wild Camel gene pool protection campaign initiated during the 10-step Campaign Training in August 2023. The camel campaign was initiated by ZSL and EEC, assisted by PCC and financed by the GIZ SPACES project. The skillful coordination of Ms Bolor, the manager of ZSL, played a crucial role in making it happen.

The training reached to more than 700 local people including eco-club kids and adults from the mentioned soums. The training was facilitated by Dr. Sunjidmaa from EEC-NUM and Ms Narangerel of PCC, a national NGO. The event in each soum comprised three sessions:
