Summary

Help protect CIWY's Ambue Ari Sanctuary and its wildlife! The 2020 fire season was devastating -- you helped us protect all the rescued animals in CIWY's care, but the fires destroyed over 400 hectares of Ambue Ari's land. We need to better protect this crucial wildlife habitat from the increasingly severe Amazon fires.

Challenge

The widespread practice of slash-and-burn agriculture, coupled with the effects of climate change, results in devastating forest fires throughout the Amazon. CIWY's Ambue Ari sanctuary comprises 983 hectares of Amazon rainforest -- 30% of the area is devoted to the rehabilitation of rescued wildlife in natural habitat, while the majority of the land is left untouched. An incredible diversity of wildlife lives here, including many threatened and endangered species.

Solution

We can better secure the perimeter of the entire sanctuary by installing three additional wells and more water towers along the fire break. A strong new vehicle is desperately needed, as our little old truck is on its last legs. Your donation will also provide temporary salaries to out-of-work Bolivians, while volunteer numbers are low. Note: If CIWY is fortunate enough to receive a grant that fully funds this project, your donation will be directed towards general operations.

Long-Term Impact

If we reach our goal, 983 hectares of Amazon rainforest will be protected from fires. You will play a part in safeguarding the incredible species that live wild and free in this critical habitat, including the jaguar, puma, ocelot, tapir, spider monkey, and giant anteater. CIWY helps preserve the biodiversity of Amazonian fauna by rescuing and protecting a wide array of animals, including endangered species. CIWY also educates the public to respect wildlife and the environment.
