Dear MEL Topic Readers,

10,000 camels at risk of being shot in Australia as they desperately search for water

Lying in the remote northwest of South Australia, Aangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara, or APY, is a large but sparsely-populated local government area for Aboriginal Australians. There are only 2,300 residents in a land that is as large as the state of Kentucky, USA, where over four million people live. Because of the heat, drought, and bushfires, many wild animals have been disturbing human lives in the region searching for scarce water. While koalas and kangaroos have been widely covered by news media and videos and receive sympathy from the world, wild camels in Australia are rarely paid attention to. But they are so desperate that they even risk themselves to lick just a little bit of water that comes out of the air conditioner of human houses.

Indeed, humans dominate and warm the world at the cost of nature and other species.

What will they do with the corpses of the shot camels? Will they be left in the field to let the bushfires burn them?

Read the article and guess how many camels have been killed by today.
