- 53 kg of garbage found in a stomach of a camel -
Last week I was visiting with #discover_me magazine the Central Veterinary Research Laboratory ((CVRL) in Dubai. Founded in 1985 by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, CVRL is a Government diagnostic centre that provides testing and research facilities to the UAE and neighbouring countries.
During the interview and the tour, I experienced the achievements over 35 years and the dedication of the team, and here I this saw displayed on a wall. (More about CVRL in the Discover ME issue October 2017)
I was curious, and wanted to know what it is:
It was found in the stomach of a dead camel, it died suffering from all this waste. While camels are grazing through the desert, they can't seperate there food from the waste so they swallow it too.
It was shocking for me, what damage we humans do to the planet and our surroundings and often we are ignorant to the fact that we actively participate in such tragedies.
Next time you are in the desert grilling or having picnics make sure you take the time to collect your waste !!! So we can avoid such tragedy and preserve heritage, nature and the camels, we love to enjoy watching in the desert.
Please share this with your friends and families.
