Founded in 1997 as a non-profit and completely volunteer run organization, our mission is simple. Save the Donkeys! Although not originally native to the small island of Aruba, they have existed here for 500 years having been the primary mode of transportation until cars began to be introduced on the island in increasing numbers. At that point, many Arubans no longer had the need for their formerly beloved donkey, and sadly in the 1970’s, a dangerous and rapidly spreading illness nearly caused their extinction leaving behind a population of only 20 wild donkeys.

    Enjoyed the visit with the donkeys. They have a large area to roam and appear to be very well cared for. If you go bring some apples or carrots for them to munch or you can purchase food at their little gift shop.

    Loved this place. We stumbled upon it last time and these friendly donkeys were free and uncaged. They came up to the car looking for handouts; we had them because they were very friendly.
