To mark World Animal Day 2018, SPANA is raising awareness of those animals that often get overlooked – the working horses, donkeys, mules, camels and elephants that help over half a billion people around the world. Our research shows that 40 per cent of UK adults don’t know what a working animal is, so please join us in helping to raise awareness this World Animal Day.

Morocco has the fifth largest population of mules in the world – 385,000. Take an in-depth look at one of these hardworking mules, Hamida, and his owner Hassan, as they give you a glimpse into life in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
