For more than 20 years CIWY has been working for the benefit of wildlife rescued from illegal trafficking, giving disadvantaged youth a sense of purpose through involvement with wildlife care, and educating the Bolivian public to respect wildlife. During this time, CIWY has also dedicated its efforts towards battlingwildlife trafficking, conserving wild flora and fauna, as well as rescuing animals which have been victims of mistreatment and illegal trading. In recent years, CIWY has focussed on rehabilitation and care of wild animals rescued from trafficking, from homes where they were kept as pets, from zoos and circuses, or affected by the destruction of their natural habitat. As Bolivia’s leading organization in wildlife rights and care, we hope to make drastic changes in our country’s view of wild animals and make strides in ending a cruel trade that removes them from their natural homes.
