Majorero Donkey Protection and Care

Majorero Donkey Protection and Care

We are currently working on the recovery of the Majorero SOO donkey, we have 8 female donkeys, 3 male donkeys and 7 young donkeys.

The Majorero donkey is the only equine of the Canary Islands. Its presence on Fuerteventura dates back to the period after the conquest of the islands in the 15th century. The historian Abreu y Galindo narrates that he himself, together with Captain General Luis de la Cueva, the island's bishop, took part in a hunt in Fuerteventura in 1580 in which 1,500 donkeys were shot. Nowadays the Majorero donkey is catalogued by the Ministry of Agriculture as a native breed in danger of extinction.
