Conservation of domestic donkey (authochtonic breed in Republic of Macedonia)
Domestic donkey in the R. of Macedonia is breed which exists in the extensive rural areas. Long time this species is forgotten and without any care for its conservation and subsidy program. From one side, a lot of Macedonian donkeys export in the other Balkan countries where are registered as their genetics and get subsidies from 100 till 250 Euros per head for biodiversity program. From the other side, the Government of the R. of Macedonia signed the Interlaken Declaration from FAO for caring out the Biodiversity program of domestic animals, where is also some equidaes like domestic donkey and domestic hill-mountain horse. Because of extinction (disappearing) of domestic donkey, it is very essential to start this project as soon as possible, and after that to be the first farm with donkeys under the National Program for Biodiversity in donkeys breeding, by the Ministry of Agriculture of the R. of Macedonia.

The implementation of the project is caring out by the only Breeding organization – approved by the Ministry of Agriculture of the R. of Macedonia – the NGO BUSHA from Skopje, which has several years an experience in biodiversity program realization in animal husbandry of authohtonous breeds in the R. of Macedonia. According to the general objective of the project – conservation of the domestic donkey, it will be the very first example in the R. of Macedonia how to implement the exact recommendations and activities for domestic donkey conservation, according to the FAO recommendations and EU regulative.
