Apthapi's story

Apthapi arrived at La Senda Verde with 8-10 months of age along with a female deer of the same age. They came from a confiscation performed by the Forestry and Environment Police (POFOMA) in Palos Blancos, North of La Paz. The tapir is the largest mammal in South America. They are known to be the “gardeners of the forest” because they are nutrient recyclers. They are excellent swimmers.

Florencia Ramírez Méndez - 25%

Mi nombre es Florencia Ramírez, tengo 19 años y quiero adoptar un animal porque creo que la destrucción de su hábitat es producto del ser humano, y poder participar de un programa como éste es dar un granito de arena para ayudar a estas criaturas inocentes.

Claudia Camacho & Thomas Willenbring- 25%

Somos Claudia y Thom, juntos tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer Senda Verde en marzo de 2020. Quedamos admirados por todo el trabajo que realizan en el lugar, brindando una segunda oportunidad a todo aquel animalito rescatado.

Ambos no quisimos quedar indiferentes ante la situación actual ni las necesidades que van creciendo. Es así, como decidimos adoptar a Aphtapi, que en particular nos robó el corazón ya que estaba camino a nuestra habitación durante nuestra estadía en el refugio pudiendo conocerlo un poquito más.

Honestamente esperamos volver a visitarlos pronto, porque el lugar es sencillamente hermoso.
