NEW OR OLD ROLE – THE DONKEY IS A FARM GUARDIAN IN AFRICA


We celebrate world donkey day each year on 8 May. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/world-donkey-day/#:~:text=World%20Donkey%20Day%20is%20the,improve%20their%20quality%20of%20life.

This year for the first time, we arranged a space on Twitter to talk and share the facts and information about the donkey. The main interest was shown by the African farmers. A friend from Namibia told us about the new task of the donkey as a farm guardian. He claimed that even the Cheetah can’t harm the livestock protected by the donkeys. https://arkbiodiv.com/2022/05/08/first-donkey-twitter-space-in-history-world-donkey-day-8-may-2022/amp/

My ecology friend Sam has shared the link about the donkey encountering the wild predators and bravely counteracting them.
