Saudi Arabia Plans to Set Up Camel Club
The kingdom has around 900,000 camels roaming in the Arabian deserts out of which the UAE has 380,000 and Oman nearly 125,000. According to official figures, the numbers are much lower in other Gulf states Bahrain, Kuwait and Qatar.
Many camel-lovers are reported to be excited over the idea of such a club which will bring them together.
“We have no such club, and I am all for it … This will bring all camel owners at one place and help them share their information about this particular animal,” a camel-owner Munahi al-Dajani told the Saudi-based daily.
The Saudi kingdom recently hosted a beauty contest for camels in which more than 13,000 animals from across the region participated.
