British Camelids Restructure
Such has been the growth of the camelid community in recent years, alpacas and llamas in particular, in 2006 it was decided to restructure the British Camelids Association (BCA). Accordingly, the Association has been divested of its breed society functions and will now concentrate solely on welfare, educational and charitable objectives.
- Members owning or interested primarily in alpacas have been transferred to the British Alpaca Society
- Members owning or interested primarily in llamas and guanacos have been transferred into the new British Llama Society
