Documentary Film Crew Visits Jaltemba Equine Education Project

A documentary film crew from Victoria, BC spent yesterday morning with the Jaltemba Equine Education Project (J.E.E.P.) rescue horses and volunteers. After a short interview with Rob Erickson, the team moved on to a joint interview with George Leavitt and Donna Brownfield to get the history of the project.

Joining us for the morning was Dr. Malcolm Macartney and a few of his team from McKenzie Veterinary Services in Victoria, BC and the Mexi-Can Vet Project, who are in Jaltemba Bay this week for the spring Jaltemba Bay Animal Rescue (JBAR) spay and neuter clinic in Rincón de Guayabitos.

The film crew got some great footage, and recorded George’s heart-warming story of the last days of life for Chance, one of the original rescue horses.

The documentary film crew of Mike and Erin have followed a few animal rescue projects around the world, and will document this spay and neuter clinic as well. This is excellent exposure for both JBAR and J.E.E.P.

Stay tuned for the results!

    I was fortunate enough to meet Chance and witness firsthand the hard work and errort put in by the rescue group. I was vaey sad to hear of his passing after my return to Canada. I hope to visit again next year and would like to offer help to this wonderful organization
