Latest press releases
Tanzania is the latest country to help halt the trade in donkey skins for traditional Chinese medicine by announcing it will close down all of its donkey slaughterhouses from July 2017.
The decision by the country’s government department, the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, has been welcomed by The Donkey Sanctuary, the international charity currently campaigning for an immediate halt to the trading of donkey skins to produce the traditional Chinese product called ejiao.
The Donkey Sanctuary has recently helped the NSPCA in South Africa to replace a stolen trailer used to transport donkeys. It comes in the nick of time as 19 donkeys, recently rescued from the skin trade that is decimating donkey populations in the country, were urgently in need of transport to safer premises.
