To celebrate World Donkey Day that is taking place globally on 8th May, the WVA collaborated with Donkey Sanctuary and Brooke to produce a short video highlighting the global fight to stop the illegal trade in donkey skins for export into the Chinese medicinal and cosmetic markets.
The video features veterinarian, Dr Anthony Akunzule, based in Ghana, who was a winner of the WVA Global Animal Welfare Awards in 2019, and pledged to use his prize to champion the cause of donkey welfare in his own country and the rest of the world.
Please watch this important film and help us to disseminate it further to raise awareness about the illegal trade in donkey skins.
A big THANK YOU goes to our correspondent, Nik Wood for putting together this great video.
