The Kurmi Wasi school in La Paz, considered one of the most prominent alternative schools in the country, took their students to La Senda Verde last weekend where they carried out different activities related to conservation and as support to the animal refuge.
One of the activities was planting flowers around the premises of La Senda Verde so that the bees can have more food and this way we support their conservation. The next day the kids participated in cleaning the land turtles and in carrying stones from the river to condition the new enclosure of the newly arrived Tiger cat, or Leopardus tigrinus.
We couldn’t be more happy with the visit of the youngsters, in part because of their support and in part because we know that activities like this one have a profound impact on their education. This is exactly what we want, and what we need, for people to learn about conservation by doing it, not just speaking about it, and by supporting organisations that are dedicated to it like ours.
