Kumbhalgarh Sanctuary to become National Park

Sorry for this post – only indirectly (but nevertheless essentially) linked to Camel Charisma. But the Raika camel breeders and other people who have traditionally grazed their animals in the Aravalli forests are in turmoil since local newspapers reported about the approval of the government for establishing a National Park in their customary summer grazing areas. Will this be the end of the camel – and other livestock – in the area? Well, lets be optimistic and hope that a solution will be found  and the local communities be involved in the management of the protected area!
