The intense rain season has not taken a vacation this Easter, while hundreds of visitors from La Paz were coming to visit the wildlife sanctuary because of the holidays, we were sending out the excavator to channel the river for the 5th time and receiving a critical amount of new animals.
Thousands of dollars have been spent on the excavator, for which we are so thankful with donors from all over the world and from La Paz who have responded incredibly to the emergency call. Thanks to them, we have avoided the worse, a complete flooding of the sanctuary.
This overwhelming situation doesn’t end with the rain. It has been raining new arrivals recently. Six baby monkeys have been turned in by the state government of La Paz, four tufted capuchins, one white fronted capuchin and a baby squirrel monkey without a tail. Thursday it was the turn for a baby tiger cat, a whole new species for us, taking our current list of species to 61. Finally, Friday was the turn of two parrots, one arrived in the morning and one in the evening.
These animals will be properly seen for. Our efforts will continue to provide the best for all of our animals, no mater how many they are and to continue with the necessary education to stop wildlife trafficking from creating new victims. Your help is crucial.
