This April veterinary surgeons, Carolyne Crowe and Brian Faulkner, are running an astonishing 10 marathons in 10 days, in extreme locations across the British Isles, to raise money for a cause close to their hearts, Brooke – Action for working horses and donkeys.
A new report, launched at a high level regional policy event in Nepal, 26-27 January 2017, will for the first time highlight the challenges of South Asia’s brick making industry by looking at human labour, working animal welfare, and the environment together.
Brooke responds to reports of blood from pregnant mares being extracted and exported for use in animal production.
2016 has been a landmark year for Brooke, meeting its ambitious goal, set almost six years ago, of reaching two million working horses, donkeys and mules in a single year, more than any other organisation.
To help governments implement the OIE standards, technical experts from Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys, The Donkey Sanctuary, The Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad (SPANA) and World Horse Welfare will have a joint poster displayed at the 4th OIE Global Conference on Animal Welfare in Mexico.
Brooke is proud to have partnered with Hope and Glory to make your cuppa count.
For the first time, the contributions of working livestock including horses, donkeys and mules to food security and nutrition, has been officially recognised by the UN in livestock recommendations formally endorsed by the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) on Monday 17 October 2016 in Rome.
Brooke and Compassion in World Farming will attend a United Nations side event discussing how livestock can best support food security and nutrition.
Brooke has recruited five new trustees including three from countries it operates in. The trustees, from India, Senegal, Kenya and the UK attended their first board meeting on Wednesday 12 October 2016.
Ugne Bubnaityte, star of the Great British Bake-Off 2015, awarded the prize for best cake at the Brooke Burghley bake off, which took place at Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials on 3 September 2016.
