The Icelandic goat is of the rarest in its species. At one point, there were only 90 such goats in the world. Jóhanna Bergmann Þorvaldsdóttir is a former nurse and a true animal lover. She decided to start up a goat breeding facility in Háafell, and thanks to her superb efforts, the number of goats has risen to over 800. Some goats from the farm have played in HBO’s popular “Game of Throwns” TV show, and tourists are always welcomed to see these beautiful, long haired goats in person.
However, the farms is in financial trouble and it could close. If this farm disappears, these wonderful goats are bound to face extinction yet again.
Current regulation prevent the traditional soaps and dairy products to be sold, despite being extremely popular. The farm is thus unable to finance itself any longer. Without $90, 000, the farm will close in September.
We urge the government from Iceland to let Þorvaldsdóttir sell raw goat milk products on the market and save this beautiful species! Please take action now! Thank you for your support.
