Promoting the Welfare of working equids

Promoting the Welfare of working equids and their importance to the livelihoods of people in developing countries.

Working equids have been described as the 'invisible helpers' in poor communities, often overlooked by policy makers and undervalued by many. However research undertaken by international equine welfare charities has shown that these animals are valuable members if the household and in some parts of the world are responsible for up to 80% of the family income.
This week JMICAWE director, Prof Nat Waran is attending the 7th International Colloquium on working equids as a guest of The Brooke, where presentations will be made by people working in communities where horses, donkeys and mules are so essential and discussions are taking place about how we can raise the awareness of the link between improving equine welfare and human well being.
