Our international work champions the quality of life for donkeys and the communities who live alongside them.

Wherever we find a donkey in need, we try to help and make a lasting difference to their quality of life.

With over 40 million donkeys spread across the globe, our international work is highly dynamic and tackles ongoing chronic problems and short term emergencies.

Under the skin report

Donkeys in a slaughterhouse holding area

Global donkey populations are in crisis. Donkeys are being traded and stolen as the demand for their skins increases, driven by the production of ejiao, a traditional Chinese remedy

We are having an impact. Progress is sometimes slow, but we know our efforts are having a positive effect.

Our Under the skin report highlights the scale of the trade, and the steps we are taking to counter the problem.
