Bactrian camels are well-adapted to desert life. To protect them from sand they have long eyelashes and nostrils which they can close. When food is plentiful, they build up fat reserves in their humps. There are probably only 300-500 wild camels left.
The Bactrian camel is an EDGE species. Find out about the EDGE conservation programme for Bactrian camels here
