EDGE Blog wrote:Two of the top 100 EDGE species, the long-eared jerboa and the Bactrian camel, are found in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia and China. This summer I flew out to Mongolia to work with Uuganbadrakh (long-eared jerboa EDGE Fellow) and Adiya (Bactrian camel EDGE Fellow) to help them get their research studies off the ground. The reason we focused on the Bactrian camel and the long-eared jerboa is that they are one of a kind species that are believed to be on the verge of extinction. They are poorly known and little is being done to conserve them.
