/ Old Rope for Expedition Mules
Please allow me to draw to your attention a request for old climbing ropes for an animal welfare project in the Moroccan High Atlas.
Existing tethering practices used on the mules of the High Atlas cause severe rope burns. A leather sheathed bracelet using a doubled up loop of climbing rope has been developed to provide a solution to this awful problem.
All expedition groups heading out to Morocco are invited to bring out and donate their old climbing ropes to the project.
Further information is available from the following Facebook page:
Ropes can be donated directly to the Kasbah du Toubkal or by contacting MoroccoGlen.
A worthy cause indeed. Felt sorry for the mules when we were there last year. Thanks for the info.
Hiya. Tried to email you via this website but it doesn't seem to work. I have some rope I'd be delighted to donate for this use. However I'm unlikely to visit The High Atlas. Is there some way I could get it to you to transport? Cheers. Martin
Hi there Rhys...
Let me know if I can be of any help...
Hi there Martin...
Thanks so much for this. I am sure I can arrange transport!!
Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best
Please see the blog on the Donkey Sanctuary website:
Any rope donations gratefully accepted.
