    from PeterGreenberg.com Voluntourism Donkeys

    https://petergreenberg.com/2018/05/0...aruba-donkeys/

    A nice article of the Aruba donkeys, Desiree and volunteering.

    Helping the donkeys is only one of the many ways to turn your vacation into a volunteercation.

    Aruba's children, infirmed, and animals all could use a bit of a helping hand.

    Can you give your time? talent? treasure?

    I haven't heard of them releasing these wild donkeys after they have captured and rehabilitated them.

    i think their safety and health is better monitored at the sanctuary.

    i absolutely see your point, but i think it is so much safer for them to be in their sanctuary.

    when we go to baby beach we always see a group of donkeys...i bet they are the ones that you have seen.
    paul and i always have the discussion about them and if they'd be better off at the sanctuary.
    he says yes, and i say maybe.

    i agree about them beautiful in the wild.
    unfortunately, the wild is becoming unwild.......motorized vehicles, people, construction etc.

    all of this is "man's fault"

    this is what is on the Donkey Sanctuary's not for profit statement page on their website.
    Fundacion Salba Nos Burico a.k.a. Donkey Sanctuary Aruba

    (Foundation Save Our Donkey)
    is a non profit organization that attends to mistreated, neglected, sick or roaming donkeys.
    We have 130+ donkeys in our care at this moment. Another 35 are still roaming the Island, these donkeys will be taken in our care in the near future. More and more houses and roads are being build, less and less space is available for the donkeys. We do not only want to protect them against the traffic and abuse, we also want to preserve them as the National Cultural In heritage of Aruba.
