In 2014 Brooke undertook an assessment of several coal mine sites in Choa Saidan Shah in Pakistan, interviewing donkey owners and other mine workers.
As part of our guest lecture series, Brooke have been inviting leading figures within the animal welfare sector to come share their knowledge with Brooke. In this video Harry Eckman from Change for Animals Foundation and a Consultant for IFAW came to Brooke to talk about building animal welfare capacity in difficult situations.
We aim to share our work widely to encourage learning and stimulate debate on working equine welfare. We list our peer reviewed published papers with links to summaries or full texts wherever possible. A listing of our oral presentations at scientific conferences since 2012 is also provided.
The Brooke Pakistan programme has established a dedicated research resource to work on topics relating to service provision and community engagement, clinical issues and policy-related topics. The team aims to share details of their work at national and international level.
