Drought hits La Senda Verde, affects the animals

Drought hits La Senda Verde, affects the animals

People who walk the mountains and have contact with nature have said it, this year we will suffer from another drought like the one we suffered last year, where parts of the city of La Paz where left without water for months. I quote a friend of mine, wildlife photographer, who published on facebook:

“I believe this year another drought is coming to La Paz. We should get prepared” 

For La Senda Verde it is not such a forecast as it is a reality. Yesterday, august 28th, Vicky Ossio told me on whatsapp that five animals where suffering from the drought, those that depend on forage to live: The Tapir, the Capybara and the two Deers (the fifth one I don’t know who it is or if it’s a mistake in counting):

“We are having trouble feeding these five animals with forage because everything has dried up. They bring us alfalfa twice a week but it’s not enough”

We will be searching for ways to alleviate the problem, since the drought barely begins, it is forecasted to last during the months of September, October and November. I will keep you up to date with the photographic evidence as well, as Vicky promises:

“I will send you also photos of the drought, the low rivers, etc.”
