The beasts of burden symbolize the region, and currently nearly 30,000 of them are making their way towards the town of Al Gharbia in Abu Dhabi, to take part in the Al Dhaffra festival.

The UAE banned the employment of child jockeys in camel racing in 2005,
after entering into an agreement with UNICEF. The country has promised to
identify and return nearly 1,100 former child jockeys to their homes in
Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sudan and Mauritania. It has also agreed to spend more
than $11 million to ensure that the former child jockeys receive medical
treatment, schooling, compensation and other forms of support.

The child jockeys have now been replaced by robots.

    Fantastic, the Camel milk called Camelicious is a fantastic product, as you said that it has less than half of the fat of cow’s milk and offcourse naturally which is most important, best for the region and with all the minerals found in camelicious sure it is better than cow’s milk.
