Tell Eastern African Authorities:
Ban The Donkey Skin Trade.
Sign the Official Petition Now.
Eastern Africa has the highest donkey population in the world.
So it’s a hotspot for donkey skin traders.
The Brooke says that donkeys are cruelly slaughtered. Their skins are used to make Chinese medicine and beauty products.
Uganda and Kenya have bans on exporting donkey skins in place.
But we need bans across eastern Africa to stop the donkey skin traders for good.
The Brooke has a petition calling on the equivalent of the EU in eastern Africa to push for a ban right across the entire region. This will protect donkeys – and help the owners who need them.
The Brooke say that at the moment, the restrictions covering the donkey skin trade are inconsistent, so traders exploit those areas where the laws and their enforcement are weakest of all. They are stealing and slaughtering thousands of donkeys.
The Brooke is calling on IGAD to push for a ban across the whole region.
Pressure from Brooke supporters has helped secure a ban in Kenya.
Kenya today, tomorrow the world.
We need to act fast to protect the theft and slaughter of donkeys.
