Our guests tonight will be Dawn Vincent, Head of Communications for The Donkey Sanctuary UK, and Marjorie Farabee, Dir. of Wild Burro Affairs for Wild Horse Freedom Federation. In January 2017, The Donkey Sanctuary (UK) issued a report titled "Under the Skin," about the global demand for donkey skins used to produce a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) called ejiao. Increasing annual global demand has been estimated to be up to four million, with some sources reporting upper limits of demand in China to be 10 million skins.
The trade in donkey skins and meat is a growing global concern in terms of animal welfare, public health and economic, social and cultural stability. Learn what you can do to help save the donkeys.
