The Colegio Franco Boliviano Alcide Obigny de La Paz or “Bolivian-French School Alcide Obigny of La Paz” has recently started an initiative to support the animals of La Senda Verde by means of a food and fund raising campaign.
Middle school students visited La Senda Verde in a delegation this past 21 of April where they were able to learn about the harms of wildlife trafficking and become interested in supporting the cause. It was them that begun a campaign to gather food supplies for the animals and funds, for which they decided to elaborate stickers and sell them. With this initiative they were able to gather 626Bs or 91 USD, funds that are going straight to the animals.
Their campaign was uploaded to their website, you can visit their post here: La Senda Verde ayuda
The kids also created a video for their campaign. Take a look at it (in spanish)
Senda Verde’s co-owner, Vicky Ossio, visited the school today Tuesday 22 of May and gave a lecture to the students of second grade of elementary. School visits like these are of upmost importance since it is here where the fight against wildlife trafficking takes place, educating kids about it, this way cutting off the demand from the demand-supply chain, all whilst getting them actively involved in supporting the animals that have been victims of this practice.
