Although there are almost 13 million Dromedaries alive today, the species is extinct in the wild: all but a handful are domesticated animals (mostly in Sudan, Somalia, India and nearby countries). There is, however, a substantial feral population of at least 32,000 in central Australia, descended from individuals that escaped from captivity in the late 19th century.

The Bactrian Camel once had an enormous range, but is now reduced to an estimated 1.4 million animals, mostly domesticated. It is thought that there are about 1000 wild Bactrian Camels in the Gobi Desert, and small numbers in Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and Russia. A small population of introduced camels,Dromedaries and Bactrians,survived in the Southwest United States until the early 1900s. These animals,imported from Turkey,were part of the US Camel Corps experiment and used as draft animals in mines, and escaped or were released after the project fell through.
