SPANA | Mules in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco

Click here to watch the Live Stream at 7pm

To mark World Animal Day, working animal charity SPANA explores the challenging and often dangerous lives of working mules and their owners in rural Morocco.

For communities located high in the Atlas Mountains, mules provide a critically important lifeline, carrying food, water and other resources to remote towns that are unreachable by road. Here, the lives of people and animals are inextricably linked.

SPANA’s film explores the vital relationship between people and animals in this remote and mountainous environment, where long distances, heavy loads and treacherous terrain take their toll on human and animal alike.

SPANA works around the world, supporting working animals and the communities that depend on them. By treating, training and teaching, SPANA helps animals in need today while also working with communities to achieve longer term practical and sustainable solutions.

A largely hidden workforce of over 200 million working animals underpins local economies around the world. This video communicates the essential value of these working animals and the intrinsic link between humans and animals in some of the most challenging locations on earth.
