Supporting the Ankara Goat Farming for its Survival


Titre : Supporting the Ankara Goat Farming for its Survival

Pays : Turquie

Numéro projet : TUR/SGP/OP4/RAF/08/01/04

Domaine : Biodiversity

Durée : 5/2008 — 10/2009

Bénéficiaire : Turkish Association for the Conservation of Nature

The project aims to support the breeding of the disappearing Ankara Goat (Capra hircus). This goat typically has very high quality wool, but is running the risk of genetic erosion as it is not breed in isolated pure herds, showing specific attention to the needs of the particular animal which is different than the common domesticated goat. With the project, the local people who still have Ankara Goats in their herds, is taught how to breed and feed the animal properly, care and veterinary assistance are provided to make the animals healthier. With healthier animals comes higher quality wool in greater quantities, which would make the breeding of the animal a preference as it would be providing the locals a steady income.
