Guess.What.Day.It.Is? (Best Ever, courtesy of Kiki!)


Notes:

  • “Every day is hump day in Gujarat, India. The rural area is famous for its swimming camels. How did these desert creatures get a taste for the sea? It’s the only way they can reach the mangroves where they feed. These Kharai camels—as they’re known—can actually swim nearly two miles in seawater. Jat Noor Mohammed’s family has been breeding and caring for these animals for generations. But, as new industries and climate change begin to destroy the mangroves that sustain these camels, his livelihood is under threat.”

  12. Wow!!! I lived in Gujarat for 12 years, and the best part of it was the camels. I never got used to seeing them on the roads and everywhere. They’re what I missed most when we moved away. But I never heard of these swimming camels. Thanks for sharing!

  17. And they too, are endangered. So terribly sad. I think I’ll throw out my computer and go bury my head in the sand. No, not really, but I’m sure you understand the sentiment.
