Dr. Jyl gives a behind-the-scenes look at the Donkey Sanctuary in Bonaire – a Caribbean island about 50 miles north of Venezuela.  The sanctuary was started in 1993, by Marina Melis and is home to about 500 sick, wounded and orphaned donkeys that had overpopulated the island. Donkeys were being killed by locals annoyed by their abundance. For more info, visit http://www.donkeysanctuary.com.
