Donkeys provide many social services such as transport of food, water and people in developing countries. However, many of these animals are not provided with adequate nutrition and health care due to the limited access to resources. A major health issue is increased gastrointestinal parasitic loads. The goal of this study is to characterize the gastrointestinal parasite population of working donkeys and to determine their spatial distribution in the Amhara Region, Ethiopia. By identifying relationships between parasite characteristics and their geographical distribution, it is possible to develop a targeted anti-parasitic treatment protocols that will address the needs of specific regions. Fecal samples will be analyzed and worm eggs will be identified via floatation-centrifugation and sedimentation. A short survey will be administered to the donkey owners to determine locational information of the animals. Data will be compiled and exported to a Geographic Information System for further analysis of their relationships.
