Don Willy - Guardia de Noche de Machia

Noticias importantes para los que conocen a Don Willy - la guardia de noche del Parque Machía.

Hace un par de semanas que Don Willy sufrió un derrame cerebral durante la noche, mientras trabajando y guardando el parque.

Se está recuperando tan bien como cabe esperar. Ha perdido el uso del lado derecha de su cuerpo, tiene dificultad en hablar y le cuesta recordar coasa que nosotros damos por hecho, tal como su vocabulario.

No ha tenido un buen año, con el cáncer afectando a él y a su familia y con la muerte de su madre.

Como todos saben, el estado de Bolivia no asiste a gente en su situación y el tratamiento que requiere cuesta dinero que él simplemente no tiene.

Don Willy ha estado una institución para Machía durante muchos años. Muchos voluntarios han pasado muchas noches boliando, tomando una bebida y charlando con él. Ha ayudado a muchos voluntarios borrachos a llegar a su habitación, ha dado la bienvenida a voluntarios en medio de la noche y ha arreglado nuestra electricidad caprichosa.

En breve, le conocemos bien y sabemos cuanto ha ayudado. Queremos poder devolverle algo y ayudarle ahorita, cuando está de mala racha.

Si alguien puede prescindir de unos dollares/libras/shekels etc. y quiere hacer una contribución hacia su tratamiento, le agradecería mucho. Hemos creado una página de recaudcaión de fondos para habilitar esto y se puede hacer una donación aquí: https://mydonate.bt.com/events/donwilly.

También, si quieres mandar una carta de apoyo, estas sin duda levantarán sus ánimos. Mandalas a Keith (su correo se puede encontrar en la página de recaudación de fondos) y las traerá a él y las traducirá si hace falta.

Don Willy - Machia's Night Guard

Important news for those of you who know Don Willy - Parque Machía's Night Guard.

Approximately two weeks ago Don Willy suffered a stroke during the night, whilst at work guarding the park.

He is doing as well as can be expected. He has lost the use of the right side of his body, has difficulty speaking and struggles to remember things we take for granted, such as his vocabulary.

He has had a bad year, with cancer affecting him and his family and the death of his mother.

As you all know, Bolivia as a state does not assist people in his situation and the treatment he requires costs money that he simply doesn't have.

Don Willy has been an institution for Machía for years. Many volunteers have spent many a night "boliando", having a drink and a chat with him. He has helped many an inebriated volunteer back to bed, welcomed volunteers in the middle of the night and fixed our dodgy electricity.

In short, we all know him well and know how much he has helped. We would really like to be able to give something back and help him right now, when he is down on his luck.

If anyone can spare a few dollars/pounds/shekels etc. and would like to make a contribution towards his treatment, he would greatly appreciate this. We have set up a fundraising page to facilitate this and donations can be made here:https://mydonate.bt.com/events/donwilly

Also, any accompanying letters of support will undoubtedly raise his spirits. Send them to Keith (his contact details are on the fundraising page) and he will take them to him and translate them if necessary.

  • Capacity to manage, communicate and work with individuals of different ages and cultures.
  • Adapt to and respect the Bolivian culture and laws.
  • Be proficient with Word and Excel and generally very comfortable with computers.

Time Commitment

The Director of Administration must commit to working six days per week. Four weeks of vacation is given per year.

Carrera de 10km de FIWY para el nuevo recinto de Rupi

A principios de julio el equipo FIWY salieron a las colinas de Derbyshire, se vistieron de jaguares y completaron éxitosamente el desafío de 10km - todo eso para recaudar fondos para un nuevo hogar para nuestro querido Rupi. ¡Ayudando a mantenerlo libre de inundaciones!

Juntos, lograron recaudar más que £900. ¡Queremos decir muchísimas gracias y felicitaciones a todos los que participaron!

Sin embargo, todavía falta bastante para que lleguemos a nuestro objetivo de £10.000 - la cantidad necesaria para comprar todos los materiales de construcción para el nuevo recinto de 40m x 60m de Rupi. ¿Puede ayudarnos a alcanzar nuestra meta? Cada donación, por pequeña que sea, realmente ayuda:https://mydonate.bt.com/events/10kchallenge4rupi/96520

Para ver más fotos y un video de la carrera, visíte nuestra página de Facebook:www.facebook.com/comunidadintiwarayassi. ¿No se podía juntarnos este año? No te preocupes, vamos a hacerlo de nuevo en 2014...

FIWY's 10k run for Rupi's new enclosure

At the beginning of July Team FIWY took to the hills of Derbyshire, donned their best jaguar outfits and successfully completed the 10k Challenge - all to raise funds for a new home for our beloved Rupi, helping to keep him flood free!

Together, they managed to raise over £900. We would like to say a massive thank you and congratulations to all of them! 

We are still a fair way off our target of £10,000 though - the amount needed to buy all the construction materials for Rupi's new 40m x 60m enclosure. Can you help us reach our goal? Every donation, no matter how small, really does help:https://mydonate.bt.com/events/10kchallenge4rupi/96520.

Por favor votar ahora! De verdad, cada voto cuenta - ¿en qué otro momento podrían 4 clics ayudar tu ONG favorita a ganar £5,000?

Ayuda a Rupi a conseguir un nuevo hogar!

Uno de nuestros jaguares más amados y más conocidos, Jaguarupi, necesita desesperadamente un nuevo recinto. Rupi se ha convertido en un gigante bello y amable, y queremos hacer todo lo posible para asegurar que mantenga feliz y sano.

El recinto que tiene Rupi ahora está ubicado en un lugar donde se inunda terriblemente cada temporada de lluvias. Cuando vienen las lluvias, su recinto entero se inunda hasta el nivel de sus hombros, lo que quiere decir que pasa la mayoría de su tiempo sentado en sus plataformas. Aunque no tiene miedo del agua, cuando está mojado para todo el día, cada día, Rupi puede empezar a frustrarse. Con cada temporada de lluvias que pasa, vemos que el pobre Rupi se pone más triste y se deprime más, a causa de su ambiente. También sufre terriblemente de hongos cada temporada de lluvias, que se ha vuelto difícil a tratar porque está ahora resistente a muchos de los antibióticos requiridos. Además, la inundación ha causado una oxidación severa de la mayoría de la malla, dejando la jaula instable e inseguro.

Se ha planeado la construcción de un nuevo recinto en una área más elevado, donde no va a haber ningún riesgo de inundación, ni siquiera durante la temporada de lluvias lo más lluvioso. También será una construcción muy segura, para asegurar que la jaula dura por muchos años venideros. Tendrá un espacio más que suficiente para deambular felizmente, uno que le servirá para el resto de sus días.

Nuevas jaulas no son baratas, especialmente una que sea tan grande que pudea alojar a nuestro jaguar más grande. Se estima que su nuevo recinto costará $20,000 USD (más o menos £13,000 GBP) y medirá 60m x 40m. Necesitamos desesperadamente construir la jaula antes de la próxima temporada de lluvias para asegurar que Rupi se queda el felino feliz y manejable que hoy día es. Por favor ayúdanos a hacerlo realidad:

  • Haz una donación hoy: para hacer tu donación, por favor visíte la página de recaudar fondos de Rupi. Todas las donaciones hechas por esta página serán transferidas automáticamente a los fondos para el traslado de Rupi (si prefieres donar por PayPal o directamente a nuestra cuenta de banco, mándanos un correo a info@intiwarayassi.org para hacernos saber que tu donación es para Rupi).
  • Participa en nuestro evento de recaudar fondos – una carrera de 10km: ¿no se puede permitirse una donación? ¡Toadviá puedes recaudar fondos para el nuevo hogar de Rupi! Acompáñanos el 6 de julio, participa en la carrera de 10km y pedir a tus amigos/familia/colegas que te patrocinen para correr. Crea tu propia página de recaudar fondos (haz clic en el botón al fondo de la página y todas las donaciones que recaudas serán vinculadas a la página principal de Rupi) y junta nuestra página de evento de facebook. Es un evento gratis, con camping gratis – todo lo que tienes que hacer es llegar. Para más información sobre el evento manda un correo a:fundraising@intiwarayassi.org. ¿No puedes estar en Inglaterra para el evento? Organíce un evento gemelo en tu propio país el mismo fin de semana.

Help Rupi get a new home!

One of our most loved and well known jaguars, Jaguarupi, desperately needs a new enclosure. Rupi has grown up into a beautiful, gentle giant, and we want to do everything possible to ensure he remains happy and healthy.

Rupi’s current enclosure is in a location where it floods terribly every wet season. When the rains come, his entire enclosure floods up to his shoulders, which means he spends most of his time sitting on his platforms. Although not afraid of water, when he’s wet all day, every day, Rupi can start to get frustrated. With each wet season, we are seeing poor Rupi become more sad and depressed because of his environment. He also suffers terribly from fungus every wet season, which is difficult to treat now that he’s resistant to many of the required antibiotics. Not only that, but the flooding has caused severe rusting in most of the fencing, leaving the cage unstable and insecure. 

Construction of a new enclosure is planned in an area higher up where flooding will not occur, even during the wettest of wet seasons. It will also be securely built to ensure the cage lasts for many years to come, and so that he has more than enough space to roam around in for the rest of his days.

New enclosures do not come cheaply, especially one big enough to house our largest jaguar. His new enclosure is estimated to cost $20,000 USD (approx. £13,000 GBP) and will measure 60m x 40m. We desperately need to build the cage before next wet season to ensure Rupi remains the happy and manageable cat he is today. Please help us make this happen:

  • Donate what you can today: to make your donation, please visit Rupi's fundraising page. All donations made via the linked page will automatically go towards Rupi’s transfer fund (if you would prefer to donate via PayPal, or directly into our bank account, then be sure to email info@intiwarayassi.org to let us know your donation is for Rupi).
  • Take part in our 10k fundraising event: can't afford to make a donation? You can still raise funds for Rupi's new home! Join us on 6 July, take part in the 10k challenge and ask friends/family/colleagues to sponsor you run. Create your own personal fundraising page (click the 'start fundraising' button at the bottom of the page and all donations you raise will be linked to Rupi's main fundraising page) and join our facebook event page. It's a free event, with free camping - all you need to do is get there. For further information about the event email: fundraising@intiwarayassi.org. Can't make it to the UK for the event? Organise a sister event in your own country on the same weekend.

Ayuda a Sonko mudarse a Jacj Cuisi

Sonko,  que  significa Corazón en quechua, llegó al Parque Machía en Marzo 2004, aún siendo un cachorro. Este puma ha ido creciendo con nosotros, disfrutando de la selva y la atención de sus voluntarios. Sin embargo, los problemas con las comunidades cercanas a la frontera del parque siempre han implicado un estrés para él, ya que es un felino muy sensible. En este momento vive en una jaula de 8x4mts y se ha presentado la oportunidad de trasladarlo a un nuevo espacio de 20x20mts en el Parque Jacj Cuisi (también conocido como Tierra de los Sueños); lo que implicaría un gran cambio en su vida. No solo tendría un mayor y más apropiado espacio, sino que también evitaría todos los problemas que hay por la tierra en Machía y podría gozar de sus senderos sin ser molestado.

Sonko1

Este cambio no solo beneficiaría a Sonko, el traslado de este dejaría un espacio disponible en Machía, y como muchos voluntarios que han trabajado con nuestro ocelote Millie saben, que ella necesita una nueva área urgentemente. El ambiente actual de Millie es muy pequeño, y este cambio seria una mejora considerable en su vida. A sí mismo el espacio de Millie va a dar lugar a un área de emergencia para los animales que puedan verse afectados por los  derrumbes en Machía y así  ayudar a disminuir los riesgos.

Para que Sonko pueda llegar a su nuevo hogar y que su viaje  no sea  largo (por tierra) y estresante, necesitamos transportarlo en un vuelo desde Chimore  (40 Km. del Parque Machía) hasta Rurrenabaque (25 Km. aproximado del Parque Jacj Cuisi). Este vuelo nos costaría $1500US (mil quinientos dólares americanos) y necesitaríamos  un poco mas de fondos, para  terminar su jaula en Jacj Cuisi.

Por favor, Sonko necesita tu ayuda para poder pagar este vuelo lo más pronto posible  y en solo tres horas estaría en su nuevo hogar reencontrándose con sus amigos de antes.

Para hacer tu donación, por favor visita ésta link - todos las donaciones hechas por ésta página serán transferidos automáticamente a los fondos para el traslado de Sonko (si prefieres donar por PayPal o directamente a nuestra cuenta de banco, mándanos un correo a info@intiwarayassi.org para hacernos saber que tu donación es para Sonko).

Muchas gracias, sabemos que podemos contar con ustedes aún en la distancia y poder hacer realidad este cambio que no es solo para Sonko, sino para Millie también.

Help Sonko move to Jacj Cuisi! 

Sonko is a Puma whose name means heart in quechua, he was brought to Parque Machía at a very young age in March 2004. He has passed his years in Machía ever since, enjoying the jungle and the company of his volunteers. Nevertheless, in the last few years he has had his trails disturbed due to their proximity to the park boundaries, including by people from the local community passing by his trails. He currently lives in a small 8m by 4m cage and there is an opportunity to move him to a new 20m by 20m enclosure in Parque Jacj Cuisi (also known as Land of Dreams); which will mean a big change in his life, where he will have his own trails, free to enjoy the jungle without the problems with the land that are now present in Machía.

Sonko1

This change will not only help Sonko, but also frees up his old cage to allow our ocelot Millie, who urgently needs a new enclosure, to move from her tiny cage to Sonko’s old cage, a major improvement in her quality of life. In addition to these changes, Millie’s current enclosure will provide an emergency location for any animals in Parque Machía in need of relocation. This will help manage the risks presented by the landslides in the park.

For Sonko to be able to move to his new home without a long and stressful journey (by road) we need to transport him to Chimore (40km from Parque Machia)  to take a flight to Rurrenabaque (25km from Jacj Cuisi). This flight will cost approximately $1500US and we need some additional funds to complete his enclosure in Jacj Cuisi.

Please, Sonko needs your help to pay for his flight so we can move him as soon as possible to his new home and in only three hours he will be reunited with some old friends.

To make your donation, please visit this link - all donations made via the linked page will automatically go towards Sonko's transfer fund (if you would prefer to donate via PayPal or directly into our bank account, then be sure to email info@intiwarayassi.org to let us know your donation is for Sonko).

Thank you to everyone near and far from Bolivia that can help make this change a reality, not only for Sonko, but also for Millie.

Lishou Noviembre 2012

Este es un mensaje que ojala nunca hubieramos tenido que escribir...

 

Muchos conocieron a Lishou, un puma que llego de la ciudad de La Paz hace 7 años, que fue rescatado de unas personas que lo utilizaban en la pelea de perros sufriendo una serie de maltratos como muchos otros animales. Gracias a voluntarios de la CIWY fue llevado al Parque Machia donde él pudo reencontrarse con su casa,donde volvio a sentir el aroma de la selva, disfrutar de largas caminatas, del amor y cuidados de muchos voluntarios. Mas tarde fue uno de los pioneros en habitar el parque Jacj Cuisi, donde se le construyo un encloser muy grande para sus noches de descanso bajo la luz de las estrellas, disfrutando también de nuevas aventuras explorando su nuevo hogar.

 

Lamentamos informar que Lishou ya no esta mas con nosotros. La madrugada del 21 de noviembre falleció, Había presentado problemas de salud hace ya un mes aproximadamente. La veterinaria del parquet, Dra. Jael, le realizo los análisis correspondientes y se le administro la medicación requerida, pero Lishou no mejoraba. Decidimos recurrir al Dr. Pascual, veterinario experimentado en fauna silvestre, para que pudiera apoyar en el tratamiento y la toma de muestras. Había la esperanza que Lishou pudiera recuperarse, pero su cuerpo no pudo mas. Pese a todos los esfuerzos del equipo veterinario y el gran apoyo de los voluntarios, Lishou no pudo resistir mas. Debido al cuadro clínico que presentaba,aun se espera los resultados para conocer concretamente las causas de su deceso.

 

Una parte de nosotros se va con el, pero su recuerdo quedara marcado en nuestros corazones porque fue un gato excepcional.

 

Gracias a todas las personas que lo amaron y que tuvieron la suerte de conocerlo sabemos que nunca olvidaremos a nuestro querido hermano Lishou.

Lishou November 2012

We regret to inform you that Lishou is no longer with us. He passed away in the early morning of November 21, having presented health problems for approximately one month. The veterinarian of the park, Dr. Jael, conducted the appropriate tests and administered the required medication, but Lishou did not improve. We decided to turn to Dr. Pascual, an experienced wildlife veterinarian, so that he could assist in the taking of samples and treatment. There was hope that Lishou would recover, but his body could not. Despite all the efforts of the veterinary team and the great support of volunteers, Lishou could not resist any longer. We are still waiting for the clinical results to know exactly the cause of death.

 

Many knew Lishou, a puma that arrived from the city of La Paz seven years ago. He was rescued from people who were using him in dogfights, suffering a series of abuses like many other mistreated animals. Thanks to CIWY volunteers, he was taken to Parque Machia where he could return to his home, feel the spirit of the jungle, enjoy long walks, and know the love and care of many volunteers. Later, he was one of the first pioneers to inhabit Jacj Cuisi, where he was built a large enclosure for relaxing under the starlight and enjoying new adventures exploring his new home.

 

A part of us goes with him, but his memory is written in our hearts; he was an exceptional cat.

 

Thank you to all the people that loved him and who were lucky enough to know him. We know that we will never forget our dear brother Lishou.

Help us to help GATO!

We are calling out to every volunteer who has ever fallen in love with CIWY’s most beautiful and oldest cat, because he now needs your help.

19 years ago a puma who was only a couple of months old was separated from his mother, in order to be sold to a circus. He was severly abused, and was found by CIWY who then rescued him: CIWY’s first rescued feline. Today, after many years, Gato continues to live with us, enjoying daily walks on his trails.

Gato is a cat who genuinely enjoys human company, especially female company. Although he can be a little grumpy at times, every volunteer who works with him cannot help but fall in love with him. He is one of CIWY’s most loved and emblematic animals, characterised by his docile and sensitive personality towards people and animals alike.

This gentleman has been with us for 16 years, and although he is doing well, the years are taking their tole on his body, and so we have decided to make some changes whilst he is still in good health. At the moment Gato lives in a large and lovely cage, but it is a long way from camp and the clinic. In the near future Gato will be requiring increased monitoring by veterinary staff, and if any emergency were to occur, Gato would be a long way away. For this reason we need to transfer Gato to be closer to the veterinary staff, and offer him flatter trails for a time when he is no longer to walk such challenging ones. However, this project comes at a cost, and that is why we are asking for your help.

Please donate what you can today to help fund Gato's urgent transfer.

Ayudarnos a Ayudar a GATO!

Queremos hacer un especial llamado a todas las personas que se enamoraron del gato mas guapo y antiguo de Inti Wara Yassi, porque ahora necesita de su ayuda. 

Hace 19 años atrás un pumita de solo algunos meses fue separado de su madre para luego ser vendido a un circo. Ahí el maltrato que recibió fue tal que llamo la atención de la organización y así se convirtió en el primer felino rescatado por Inti Wara Yassi. Hoy día después de muchos años sigue con nosotros, disfrutando de sus senderos y de su vida aquí.   

Gato es un puma de personalidad muy gentil que realmente disfruta la compañía humana, en especial de sus chicas. Aunque a veces pueda ser un poco gruñón todas las personas que trabajan con él no pueden evitar enamorarse de este ser. Es uno de los animales mas queridos y emblemáticos de Inti Wara Yassi, caracterizado siempre por su personalidad dócil y sensible hacia las personas y otros animales.  

Este chico ya lleva 16 años con nosotros y aunque esta muy bien ya se puede notar el peso de los años en su cuerpo y por eso hemos decidido realizar algunos cambios aprovechando que todavía goza de buena salud. En este momento Gato vive un una bella jaula muy amplia, pero bastante alejada. La realidad es que en un futuro no muy lejano él necesitara más control de los veterinarios y ante cualquier emergencia en este momento se encuentra muy apartado. Por esta razón necesitamos realizar un traslado que lo acerque al personal del parque y que le proporcione caminos mas planos para cuando ya no pueda seguir con la rutina que hoy lleva. Sin embargo todo este proyecto tiene un costo y es por eso que necesitamos su ayuda. 

Por favor, este es un pedido urgente para fondos, haga una donación hoy y ayudarnos a trasladar a Gato.

Parque Machia Spider Monkey Update August 2012

The Spiders continue to enjoy their their new home high in the jungles of Machia. Spider volunteers continue to enjoy vast improvements in their fitness and strength levels during their time in Spider Park. Well develped thigh muscles have become the surest way to spot any Spider volunteer, the direct result of 2 daily ascents of ¨Spider Mountain.¨ The Spider monkeys continue to gain more confidence in exploring the jungle. It is quite common for cat volunteers to report seeing them in various location throughout the park, moving gracefully through the trees. Guarayos and Esperanzo are now almost fully grown, and are both particularly impressive to see. The quite regularly leap from branch to branch, remaining airborne for two to three seconds.

 

There have been some new additions to the group. Michaela and Dana now have babies, who are about 7 months old, and get more and more independent every day. Dave, continues to thrive, and has recently decided he loves babies so he is often spotted playing happily with them and occasionally will try to run away with Michaela´s baby. Quiswara had a baby about three months ago, and he is already shaping up to be the confident monkey that Vladicito is.

 

About 8 months ago, 2 new monkeys came to Machia. The first, an infant named Tortuga (formerly known as Nigel), was surrendered to Machia as a former pet. He had a rough start, losing the tip of his tail after a bite. Despite this, he is currently living up in Spider park, and adapting to his loss quite well. He sleeps with Morocha who is protective of him, but gets on well with the other monkeys, especially Dave and Isabella´s baby, who is now called Sophia. He is also very fond of Guarayos, and as always it is amusing to see wild and crazy Guarayos be so gentle. The second Monkey, Luisa, was about two years old on arrival. She was found in Cochabamda, running around on roofs of buildings, presumably having escaped life as a pet. She was brought to the group and introduced on cord, but has since become a free monkey. She is generally happy and content and loves climbing and playing with other monkeys. She is still a little hesitant around the adults especially during feeding times, but she is very good at getting food for herself from the plates and is quickly finding her place in the group heirarchy. While perhaps not the most attractive monkey, she has the most playful adorable personality. She loves being with other monkeys and from the moment she arrived has always been more focused on other monkeys than volunteers, and seems to really appreciate being given the chance to live as a part of a group, rather than alone as a pet.

 

The babies from two years ago, Dave, Piloto, Lucianita, Sarita, and Leo, continue to grow and thrive. They are often collectively referred to as the Child Soldiers, do to their rambunctious style of play, and their constant attempts at stealing food from the buckets before it can be raised in the feeding plates to the trees. They Quickly accepted Tortuga and Luisa into their ranks, and now the sounds of juvenile spider monkey play noises are a constant in Spider Park.

 

The group itself continues to change constantly, and has its ups and downs, as is normal for any group of wild monkeys, but the Spider themselves, remain the intellegent, beautiful, sensitive animals they have always been.

Ambue Ari Update August 2012

As always, it’s been an exciting time in Ambue Ari this year. Despite low volunteer numbers, we’ve still achieved our goals in terms of construction projects and day to day care of our animals.

 

We’re so proud and happy to announce that our baby tapir Tony has a new home. Tony was rescued near Rurrenebaque and was taken to Jacj Cuisi when he was very young. He was quite unhealthy when he arrived, suffering from malnutrition and malnourishment, but rapidly recovered and was moved to Ambue Ari when he was healthy enough, where he continued to grow (and grow!) and has now been moved to his new enclosure. His new home is next to Herbie, our other resident tapir, and the two will hopefully become close friends and be able to live together in the near future.

 

We have now started construction on two more projects, one being a new cage for one of our ocelots, Engine. His old enclosure has deteriorated and is also located quite close to another ocelot, OB. His new enclosure will be further away, which will help both ocelots from being distracted or annoyed by the other, and will also give Engine a bigger territory which means longer trails, and also access to the river.

 

Our other big construction project under way is for our new cafe. Located on the edge of the park, the cafe will be a huge financial assistance for the park. Not only that, but issues relating to transport to and from Santa Maria (where volunteers often go for a movie, beer or empanada) but will also help relations with that community, who haven’t always appreciated large numbers of foreigners invading their peaceful little village. Further information on the cafe, including how to immortalise yourself (or someone you know) on the walls of the cafe, will soon be available on Facebook.

 

We’ve been blessed with another visit by a group of Quest volunteers. After a couple of weeks of hard work on construction in Jacj Cuisi, the group of 7 volunteers came to Ambue Ari to help out with the animals, and yep, do more construction! They’ve been a huge help to us – we really needed the help with the animals, and it’s also the time of year when we need to get our fire trail cut. The fire trail is necessary to ensure uncontrolled fires from nearby farms practicing slash and burn agriculture don’t spread onto our land. So thank you Quest for your hard work, love and dedication!!

 

We’ve also had a number of new arrivals to the park in recent months, which sadly indicates the ongoing trafficking of animals as well as other effects humans are having on wild animals.

A baby sloth was entrusted to us by the church in Guarayos. A tiny creature when it arrived, it is doing remarkably well. Guzzling milk and eating more leaves every day, it is gaining strength almost by the hour, and is a likely candidate for release.

 

Two birds have also been rescued by volunteers in the past months. One is a young eagle whose mother either abandoned her or was killed. Despite her large size, she is still learning to fly. With the help of experienced volunteers, she is now being taken out for flying lessons every day, and is also a candidate for release once her strength and hunting skills are good enough.

 

The other bird now in our care is an owl, who most likely as a result of traffic headlights, flew into a tree and got stuck between branches. She was brought to the park and her broken wing was operated on, but unfortunately the break was so bad her wing was eventually amputated. As a result it cannot be released, so we have created an isolated home for her away from other animals and people. It is devastating for such a beautiful animal accustomed to living in the wild, but hopefully we will be able to provide it with the best life possible without release.

 

As always, we would like to thank all of our dedicated volunteers, both temporary and permanent, for endeavouring to provide these young animals with the best life possible.

11/07/2012 FIWY Trustees Update

Friends of Inti Wara Yassi is a UK registered charity that was founded in 2008 and supports the work of the Communidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY) by raising funds and awareness of their work.

 

Two of FIWY's longest standing Trustees have stepped down this year and so we would like to thank Jon Cassidy and Esperanza Fernandez for their commitment and remarkable contributions to FIWY over the last 4 years. Jon and Esperanza will continue to be actively involved in FIWY, but are taking a step down to allow for family and other commitments, as well as in order to bring in new, active trustees in order to encourage FIWY's growth.

 

We would like to welcome Matthew Brimble and Laura Coleman who have recently been appointed as FIWY trustees. Matt and Laura both spent extensive time volunteering with CIWY and working as administrators in Parque Machia and Ambue Ari, and we believe will bring a wealth of knowledge and new ideas to FIWY.

 

If you are interested in becoming involved in FIWY, please email us at info@intiwarayassi.org

20 Year Anniversary letter from the President

Dear Family and Friends,

 

Wow! Our beloved Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi has now existed for twenty years! I have so many memories – some sad, some happy, some exciting. Who would have thought that a simple play time with children from El Alto, could have produced a movement that has impacted and inspired our society in Bolivia and beyond to defend our planet and change people’s lives! Throughout our journey we have shown that one’s dreams can be made reality when founded in love, passion and determination. Many people have passed through our family, starting with the children who joined us in our first experience of the jungle on the Choro trail where we strengthened our commitment to protest against the abuse that was being carried out towards our planet in front of an indifferent government. One example was on the shores of Lake Titicaca in Copacabana where we carried out a cleanup action. The first time we did this the people did not understand why and they looked at us as if we were crazy. The second time some tourists came and helped us. The third time, the whole town of Copacabana, including the authorities, united to help us and understood the message. This experience motivated us to persevere.

We then became directly involved with our brothers and sisters of the jungle. Nena, a spider monkey was our very first guest, and after many battles we decided that we could no longer care for her and Pepa, a capuchin monkey, and other animals, and with tears in our eyes we made the decision that we had to leave them at La Paz zoo. I will never forget the moment when we had to leave them, the way that Nena spoke to us with her tender and profound expression and pleaded us not to leave them and to continue fighting for them, and so we did. We left our old lives and started a new life dedicated entirely to the animals; I asked God for a square metre of land with a little tree in which I could care for the animals, and thanks to God he made my dream a reality – and much more! He gave us Machia and two parks of our own – Ambue Ari and Jacj Cuisi - where many animals that were rescued could have a second chance at life in the jungle.

This introduction is nowhere near enough to mention, acknowledge and thank all the people who have passed through our family and supported us in our battle to defend those without a voice; those who will never return and are now in heaven together with many of our animal brothers and sisters who have left us and are now eternally free, those who trusted in us; those who left their blood, sweat and tears with us, taking ‘natural’ tattoos with them created by the animals, those who continue to support us from from their communities, regions, countries and parks. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Our work is not over, and there is much more to do in the face of the destruction of our jungle, leaving a bleak future for future generations. We carry the message that every living being is important in life and as part of the ecological balance, and that one day we may live together in harmony with nature. Our hearts beat to hear these words that unite us across the globe; no distance can break this commitment, love and passion for our capuchins, spider monkeys, pumas, parrots, coatis, jaguars, bear, pigs, deer, snakes, and all who are part of the Inti Wara Yassi family.

 

From wherever you are... say the word INTI, say the word WARA, say the word YASSI... ‘INTI WARA YASSI!’

Many thanks and may God bless you.

"Volunteering at Inti Wara Yassi, is a matter of principle."

Pumitas llegan en Jacj Cuisi

Dos pumitas quienes estaban en Ambue Ari durante los ultimos meses, han sido transferidos a Jacj Cuisi por avion. Tomamos la decision de trasladarles por avion por que el viaje es mucho mas corto, y asi menos estresante para los felinos. Muchas gracias a la fundacion Boliviana 'Mano a Mano' para ayudarnos con el transporte y darnos un buen precio. Gracias tambien a todos los voluntarios y el personal de CIWY quienes ayudaron con la preparacion para el traslado, y tambien para la preparacion para recibirles en su nuevo hogar en Jacj Cuisi. Gracias tambien al grupo de Quest quienes construeron su jaula linda. Los dos estan muy feliz en su nuevo hogar.

The Pumitas are in Jacj Cuisi

Two young pumas that had temporarily taken up residence in Ambue Ari, have been succesfully transferred to Jacj Cuisi by plane. This meant that their travel time was much shorter and therefor the whole procedure was less stressful for them. A big thanks go to the Bolivian foundation 'Mano a Mano' for helping us with the transport and giving us a reduced rate. Also a huge thanks go to all the volunteers and staff that helped to prepare the cats for this move, and also helped to prepare for their arrival, as well as the Quest teams that worked hard to build their enclosure. Both are said to be doing very well in their new home!

Sincere Condolences to Jarrah Young's Family and Friends

A former volunteer, Jarrah Young, died tragically when her vehicle recently overturned in Namibia. Her brother was with her and survived the accident. Jarrah and her sister, Tarli, volunteered with us in Ambue Ari in one of the worst wet seasons the park has known (2008), and are remembered for their positive outlook, high spirits and hard work.

Sincerest condolences go to all of Jarrah's family and friends from the Inti Wara Yassi family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

The CIWY family.

Popular's Cage is Complete!

Populars’ new enclosure has been completed and he’s moved in!  After several months of hard work by the whole team at Ambue Ari, Populars’ new enclosure has been completed – a spectacular enclosure measuring 40m by 20m, which encompasses an enormous fallen tree who’s roots are still attached and is therefore still living – which provides Popular with a massive playground and natural platforms. The location also means that Popular, who hates water, will no longer suffer from having a cage that floods.

He was moved on Wednesday the 9th of October with no problems – he was put to sleep and carried to the new site, which is hundreds of metres away from the road and other cats. He is now adjusting to his new environment and massive increase in freedom – which he has deserved for his whole life. We have no doubt he will love his new home and new found freedom.

Popular's Story: 

In November 2006, two volunteers from Machia, with the help of the police, went to a circus located close to Villa Tunari to rescue spider monkeys.

When they arrived at the circus, they also found a puma being kept in a tiny cage. The volunteers wanted to rescue the puma as well as the monkeys, but the police would not allow it.

But the volunteers fought with the authorities and eventually managed to rescue the puma, who was taken to Parque Machia, where he stayed until December of that year.

He was moved from Machia to Ambue Ari, and was initially housed in the secondary cage of another puma Elsa, until a new cage for Popular was ready.

His new cage was ready in March 2007. Financial constraints meant that this original cage was only 8m by 8 m, which did not provide Popular with very much space to move around.

During his time in the circus, it is believed Popular was forced to jump through rings of fire among other acts. His prior living conditions and maltreatment left him traumatised and nervous, and the sight of ropes caused him a lot of stress and fear, which resulted in aggression. For this reason unfortunately Popular could not be walked by volunteers, which meant he was confined to his cage permanently.

Much of Ambue Ari floods in the wet season, and unfortunately Poplar’s original cage suffered from this during many months of the year. Popular, being afraid of the water, was constrained to just a couple of platforms connected by walkways.

It has always been a dream for Inti Wara Yassi to be able to provide Popular with an enclosure and life that he deserves after all the suffering that was inflicted upon him.

After many months of fundraising conducted internationally by volunteers working with Friends of Inti Wara Yassi, as well as many fundraisers conducted by volunteers at Parque Ambue Ari, the money was finally raised to start on his new enclosure.

Now, after the tremendous work of volunteers and Bolivians, his new enclosure has been completed. Measuring 20m by 40m, his enormous new domain encompasses a huge fallen tree whose roots are still connected to the ground, which means it is still living and will provide Popular with an adventure playground of natural platforms for many years to come.

Inti Wara Yassi would like to thank the dedication and hard work of all of those people who have been involved in the rescuing and care of Popular over the past years, but also those involved in the fundraising and construction of Poplars’ new enclosure. Popular has finally received the home he deserves, and we are so excited for him to be able to start the next stage of his life.

Roots & Shoots America Latina

CIWY va a participar a la primera Reunión Panamericana de Roots & Shoots de Jane Goodall en América Latina y el Caribe!

Hace veinte años, dieciséis jóvenes en Tanzania, África del Este se reunieron con la Dra. Jane Goodall para compartir sus ideas sobre cómo hacer de su país y del mundo un lugar mejor para los animales, el medio ambiente y la comunidad humana.

Esos jóvenes eran de diferentes razas, religiones y etnias, pero tenían algo en común. Ellos, y Jane Goodall, creen que una persona puede hacer la diferencia. Pero también creían que un grupo de personas con las mismas preocupaciones podrían hacer una diferencia aún mayor.

Los dieciséis de Tanzania se han convertido en cientos de miles de personas en más de ciento cuarenta y cinco países y grupos de diez mil que conocemos. Ahora es nuestro turno de unir a esos grupos para cambiar el mundo, de hecho para salvar al mundo. Nadie sabe tan bien como los que viven en América Latina y El Caribe, la rapidez de la destrucción de los bosques, los animales y las comunidades humanas que está ocurriendo y lo importante que es minimizar o detener este flagelo.

Roots & Shoots América Latina / Caribe (LACRIB) tiene ahora más de cincuenta grupos en 19 países e islas del Caribe. Ellos están haciendo todo lo increíble que se pueda imaginar para hacer las cosas mejor. Lo que no hemos estado haciendo es compartir con los demás, aprendiendo unos de otros, ayudándose mutuamente. Eso es lo que esta reunión quiere lograr.

Estamos especialmente contentos de tener a la Dra. Jane con nosotros, estaremos atentos a escuchar, a compartir, a ser mentores.También estamos honrados de tener representantes de los pueblos indígenas de al menos cuatro países para darnos una perspectiva que necesitamos para recordar de dónde venimos y hacia dónde debemos encaminarnos.

Earth Train con Nathan Gray, Lider Sucre y su equipo han hecho un milagro en hacer esto posible. Tenemos que desarrollar un programa, entonces que no sólo nos de el conocimiento, la alegría yla sabiduría cuando estemos en Panamá, sino también que nos de las herramientas y la información que necesitamos, cuando regresemos a casa. Esto nos permitirá continuar con nuestros esfuerzos para dar a nuestros niños y nuestros adultos, el poder de hacer de nuestras casas, pueblos, ciudades, países UN MUNDO MEJOR!

Roots and Shoots Latin America

10/10/2011: Breaking News: CIWY will be participating in the first Pan-American gathering of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, Latin American and Caribbean! 

Twenty years ago sixteen young people in Tanzania, East Africa met with Dr. Jane Goodall to share their thoughts on how to make their country and the world a better place for animals, the environment and the human community.

They were a mix of races, religions and ethnicities. They had one thing in common. They, and Jane Goodall, believed that one person could make a difference. But they also believed that a lot of people with the same concerns could make an even bigger difference.

The sixteen from Tanzania have become hundreds of thousands in over one hundred and forty five countries and ten thousand groups that we know of. Now it’s our turn to join those groups to change the world, indeed to save the world. Nobody knows as well as those living in Latin America and the Caribbean how fast the destruction of the forests, animals and human communities is occurring and how important it is to turn this around.

Roots & Shoots Latin America/Caribbean (LACRIB) now has over fifty groups in 19 countries and Caribbean islands. They are doing every incredible thing you can think of to make things better. What we have NOT been doing is sharing with each other, learning from each other, helping each other. That is what this gathering will accomplish.

We are especially pleased to have Dr. Jane with us to listen, to share, to mentor. We are also honored to have representatives of the indigenous people of at least four countries to give us a perspective that may be what we need to remember where we came from and where we need to go.

Earth Train and Nathan Gray, Leider Sucre, and his staff have performed a miracle in putting this together. We need to perform another one in creating a program then not only gives us knowledge and joy and wisdom when we are in Panama but also gives us the tools and information we need when go home. This will allow us to continue our efforts to give our children, and our adults, the power to make our homes, towns, cities, countries and world better.

Defensa de TIPNIS

Los pueblos indígenas del TIPNIS (Territorio Indígena y Parque Nacional Isiboro-Secure) han marchado durante un mes hacia la ciudad de La Paz en contra de la construcción de una carretera que divide en dos esta área protegida.  El gobierno, en los últimos días, ha reaccionado de manera violenta contra ellos, atentando contra los derechos humanos y derechos a la vida.  Ante estos acontecimientos ocurridos en la marcha por la defensa del TIPNIS, la Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi se solidariza con nuestros hermanos indígenas y repudia la violencia con la que han actuado las autoridades nacionales, vulnerando los derechos constitucionales de protesta.  También demandamos al Gobierno Nacional respete esta lucha y respete el Parque Isiboro-Secure declarado por ley un Área Protegida de gran importancia por su biodiversidad.

Jonathan Andrews - Previous Volunteer at Ambue Ari

Jonathan (Jono) Andrews

August 7, 1992- September 7, 2011

Graduate of Western Canada High School

Alexander Rutherford Scholarship Recipient

Connor Simpson award (2010)

 

Jonathan beloved son of Robert and Kathy, cherished brother of Sarah, and devoted pet owner of Russell passed away on September 7, 2011. Jonathan was deeply loved by his grandparents, Elizabeth and Bob Andrews, and Colleen Reimer. His aunts and uncles (Peter and Susan Reimer, Beth Reimer-Heck and Barry Heck,  Laurena and Kendry Smales, Julia Reimer-Rock and Tyler Rock, Scott Andrews and Rob Almack, Susan Andrews) adored him except when he emptied their fridge! His expertise at cake eating and making people laugh was envied by all his cousins (Candice (Tim and Liam), Kyle, Jared, Kathryn, Alexander, Emma, Luke, Andrew and Karma).His early passing is a tremendous loss to his family and friends.

  Jonathan was a dynamic, thoughtful and talented young man who accomplished a great deal in his very short life. Jonathan attended Jennie Elementary school where he enjoyed working with the TASC class. This was the time in his life when he started swimming with Glencoe Gators. He won a number of swimming awards including the age group club championships. Jonathan attended Bishop Pinkham Junior High in the French Immersion program where he was often on the honor roll. Jonathan continued on with the French Immersion program while attending Western Canada High. He truly embraced the wonderful urban setting and was sometimes seen near by the dumpsters as he often chose to give away his lunch to the resident homeless people. He immersed himself in high school life where he played football, rugby, swam on the school team and participated in the environmental club.   He remained on the honor roll due to his hard work and support by Carol, his tutor and friend.  In his graduation year he played on two city championship teams.

Jonathan then went on to work three jobs to pay for his dream trip (to travel to places where none of his family had travelled before). He particularly enjoyed his time working nights at Wallace-Carey where he learned to pack pallets quickly, convince his colleagues to their share snacks and to finally recycle their empty bottles. He also managed the art of working 12 hour night shifts while still finding time to date, hang out with buddies (Jon, Evan and Hailey) and play rugby with the Canucks.

Jonathan departed with his three gr. 1 buddies (Ian, Andrew and Brandon) to South America in November 2010, highlights of this trip for Jonathan were hiking Machu Pichu and the time he spent at Communidad Inti Wara Yassi, Ambue Ari Reserve working with Leoncio the puma and Katie the jaguar whom he was responsible for. He spent five weeks enduring the Bolivian jungles so that he could walk both animals 20 km. daily. These experiences impacted Jonathan greatly and deepened his love for animals and thoughts of returning one day to work at one of the other reserves.  Jonathan and his buddies also reveled in carnival in Brazil where they were graciously hosted by the Cavalcanti family. Jonathan loved the floats, parties and the bikinis on the beaches.

In addition to his school activities and travels Jonathan learned to play piano, build go-carts, ski and mountain bike at the family cottage in Fernie and most recently develop his skill as a brew master.

Tragically, Jonathan’s life ended as he started the next phase of his life as a student at Acadia University. He was excited to enter the faculty of science and play club rugby. He told his parents the last time he saw them, was that he planned to make as many friends as he could in the next two weeks.

Jonathan’s spirit will continue on as he left a legacy of love, humor and deep enthusiasm for life. Jonathan’s organs have been donated for transplant as his family knew that this was wish of Jonathan’s.

The family wishes to thank the staff at Acadia University, Valley Regional Hospital and  QEII Hospital Halifax for their excellent care of Jonathan during this tragic time.

A celebration of life will occur on Friday Sept. 16th at 2:30 PM at the Glencoe club (636-29 Ave. S.W. Calgary 403-243-2506). The family requests in lieu of flowers that donations be made to CIWY, please click on the button below

 

Alternatively donations could also be made to the Calgary Humane society  http://www.calgaryhumane.ca/.

The Jungle Roadshow's first tour!

MESSAGE FROM THE “SAVE THE AMAZON” JUNGLE ROADSHOW!

Caravana-Ninos.jpg

September 5th 2011

We would like to thank the local authorities, individuals, CIWY staff and park volunteers which in one way or another helped to make a reality of our “Save the Amazon” Jungle Roadshow. This event, part of CIWY's education programme, passes on the message from our animal cousins to look after their home, much of which is on the brink of destruction by people who do not care about the damage it will cause to both the animals and to themselves. The roadshow was well received everywhere we went, helping to awaken the awareness in our children of the importance of protecting our biodiversity.

Titeres.jpg

A special congratulations go to the protagonists of this initiative, Dr Veronica Gomes, Dr Pascual Quispe, Sandra Padilla and our Roadshow director Carlos Giraldo, who should be very proud of its success.

Entrevista Con Paola Marquina - Representante Regional para CIWY

¿Que es un Representante Regional?

Un representante regional de la CIWY, es el responsable de la coordinación, con las autoridades de medioambiente, fiscalías y personeros de la gobernación,  para la elaboración de proyectos para evitar el tráfico de animales, realizar el rescate de animales y devolverlos a su medioambiente.

 

 ¿En que consiste en trabajo del Representante Regional?

Mi trabajo consiste en asistir a reuniones con autoridades, y exigirles el cumplimiento de las leyes, rescatar los animales silvestres y coordinar con la fiscalía y la policía para decomisar animales de domicilios particulares o de los mercados los cuales están en condiciones de crueldad. Luego de rescatarlos hay que informar inmediatamente a la presidenta de la CIWY. En caso de que los mismos presenten algunas lesiones graves o que necesiten una atención de emergencia, recurrir inmediatamente a un veterinario o en caso contrario transportarlos de inmediato al parque.

 

¿Como llegasta a trabajar de voluntaria como Representante Regional?

Demostrando mi capacidad para amor, lealtad y mi trabajo constante e incansable por los derechos de los animales y la naturaleza.

Al arriesgarme a tantas amenazas, empecé a buscar ayuda con las autoridades a los mismos que invite a que conocieran el trabajo de la CIWY. Los mismos que quedaron impresionados con la labor que realizamos. Al ver la CIWY el trabajo que realizaba me nombraron como representante regional de Cochabamba

 

¿Que significa este trabajo para ti? 

Significa una satisfacción para mi vida. y poder aportar con un granito de arena por los que no tienen voz.

 

¿Que es lo peor que has visto durante tu tiempo de Representante Regional?

La crueldad y las condiciones: los animales son transportados en bolsas de ciudad en ciudad para ser comercializados por los traficantes. También la falta de interés de las autoridades para controlar el tráfico de estos.

He visto muchas cosas: en los mercados los animales están en jaulas pequeñas, monos bebes abrazados de los gatos loros sin comida los maltratan les cortan las alas y a los monos los dientes… loros siendo vendidos en las calles insolados con las patitas amarradas a un palo sin tomar agua, monos en bolsas. Las autoridades en coordinación con nosotros voluntarios, decomisaron alrededor de 200 loros como 25 en bolsas (saquillos) mojados uno sobre otro sin comida. Y lo peor animales torturados trabajando en circos .

 

¿Que es lo mejor de tu trabajo? 

La felicidad de verlos cuando ellos ya entienden que nosotros los estamos salvando de la crueldad y el maltrato y que están volviendo a su medioambiente.

Es un trabajo que no tiene palabras: es salvar una vida. Significa mucho para mí ya que son seres vivos que perdieron su libertad vivieron muchos años enjaulados algunos sin sus madres y verlos libres saltando de árbol en árbol me llena de vida y esperanzas para otros que algún día volverán a ser felices.

 

Cuentanos sobre un momento memorable en tu trabajo:

En realidad tuve muchos momentos memorables uno fue cuando rescatamos a popular de un circo en Ibirgarzama fue tan hermoso ver que el llegaría a tener un buena vida ya que lo maltrataban y lo hacían saltar por fuego. Otro fue el rescate de yepeto, villa y ignacio a ellos tb loes rescatamos de un circo y lo memorable de estos dos casos fueron que CIWY cochabamba  logro a que se empezara a decomisar animales de los circos conforme a las leyes. El más importante fue tener el contacto de madre a hijo con el puma quirqui y haber aportado a que el puma quirqui haya tenido una mejor calidad de vida.

Y uno de los peores momentos fue cuando fuimos a decomisar animales del mercado y la gente me empezó a atacar y ATENTARON CONTRA MI VIDA, en ese tiempo las autoridades no nos escuchaban  fue un día muy duro ya que muchos animales se quedaron en el mercado y no pudimos hacer nada. Pero la verdad es que todos los casos son muy buenos para mi principalmente cuando vuelven a su selva.

 

¿Como pueden ayudar los voluntarios de CIWY en el trabajo de los Representantes Regionales?

La ayuda que podrían darnos los voluntarios es con material de rescate ( jaulas, material de primeros auxilios) y una de las ayudas que mas necesitamos es económicamente por que no contamos con un presupuesto para los rescates ya que contamos con nuestra propio dinero para los rescates y que los fondos de la Comunidad no son suficiente para nuestros animales albergados en los parques y no alcanza y la mayoría de los rescates tenemos que hacerlo en taxi ,  otra de las ayudas seria material educativo para así poder dar mas educacion y concientizaciona la gente.

 

TAMBIEN QUIERO CONTARLES que en mi casa tengo un pequeño refugio de perros y que se hacen esfuerzos muy grandes para las esterilizaciones de las perritas de la calle con mis propios recursos.

Regional Representative Interview with Paola Marquina

What is a CIWY regional representative?

CIWY’s regional representatives are responsible for coordinating with authorities and governmental bodies in charge of the environment in their region, in order to formulate plans to contend with and reduce animal trafficking, rescue wild animals, and return wild animals to their natural environment.

 

What does your work as a regional representative consist of day-to-day?

My work consists in meetings with the authorities in order to promote law enforcement and encourage them to rescue wild animals. I coordinate with the authorities to seize wild animals from cruel conditions in homes and markets. Once rescued I coordinate their rehabilitation with the president of CIWY. If they require urgent medical care then I arrange that with a local veterinary team. If not then they are transported immediately to Inti Wara Yassi’s care in one of the three refuges.

 

How did you come to work as a regional representative?

I demonstrated my capacity for love and loyalty, and my constant and untiring energy to work for the rights of animals and the environment.

I underwent a number of threats in my work in defence of animals and finally decided to ask for the authorities for help in the work I carried out. These authorities told me about Inti Wara Yassi’s work and so I started to coordinate rescues with them. Once CIWY saw the work I was doing, they invited me to become one their regional representative in Cochabamba.  

 

What does this work mean to you?

This work signifies a satisfaction for me as I am able to give my grain of sand for those that don’t have a voice.

 

What is the worst thing you have witnessed in your work as a regional representative:

The Cruelty and the conditions that the animals endure: they are transported from city to city in plastic bags in order to be sold. Also the lack of interest by the authorities to control illegal trafficking.

I have seen many things: animals kept in tiny cages in the markets, baby monkeys that have had their teeth pulled out, kept in tiny cages together with cats and other domestic animals, parrots with no food or water that have been abused and had their wings clipped. I have seen parrots suffering from heat stroke and with no access to water, being sold in the streets with their feet tied to a stick. Recently the authorities, together with our volunteers, seized more than 200 birds that were found in 35 bags in a hotel room (featured in the last newsletter). They were in terrible conditions. Animals seized from circuses are often in even worse consitions.

 

What is the best thing about this work?

The happiness that I feel when I see that the animals understand that we are saving them from cruelty and abuse and that they are returning to their natural environment. There are no words to describe the feeling of saving a life. These are living beings that have lost their freedom for many years, kept in cages and many without their mothers. Seeing them jump from tree to tree fills me with life and hope for the others who will also return to happiness one day.

 

Tell us about a memorable moment of your work: 

I have had many memorable moments. One of them was when we rescued Popular from a circus in Ivirgazama. It is wonderful to see that he is able to have a good life now despite the abuse he endured whilst being made to jump through fire. Another great moment was rescuing Chepeto, Villa and Ignacio from another circus. The memorable thing about these two occasions was that CIWY Cochabamba managed to start seizing animals from circuses with support of Bolivian law. My most important work has been in my mothering role for the puma Quirqui, and supporting him to have a good quality of life in Parque Machia.

One of the worst moments was when we went to seize animals from a market and the people started to attack me and tried to kill me. During these times the authorities did not listen to us. It was a very difficult day as many of the animals stayed in the market and we were unable to save them. The truth is that every experience is good when it involves the animal returning to their natural environment.

 

How can volunteers of Inti Wara Yassi support your work?

We desperately require supplies for rescue (cages and first aid supplies), and one of the biggest forms of support we require is financial support. We also need educational materials in order to raise awareness of this problem.

**Mirador Update**

As those of you are aware who were present during the construction of the road through Parque Machia, a lack of space throughout the rest of Parqye Machia led to the move of the Monkey Mirador to an area near the beach, as the old Mirador site was in one of the most affected areas by the construction of the road.

Due to the heavy rains during the wet season, the River Espiritu Santu flooded its banks and as a consequence, flooded the new mirador location.  Sadly this natural disaster caused the deaths of ten of our Capuchin brothers and sisters. The days following the disaster were long and hard: the remainder of the area had to be evacuated and a safe location for the rest of the Capuchins had to be created. This was done in Quirqui’s old area, where most of the monkeys had to be held in small cages whilst they awaited the completion of the new Monkey Mirador area, which was built around Sonko’s old cage.  

Thanks to the hard work and efforts of those who joined us in those hard times, we were able to quickly complete Sonko’s new area and transfer Sonko, so that we could build the new mirador.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank the efforts and dedication of all the long term volunteers, new volunteers and Bolivian staff, as well as soldiers of the Ninth Division of Villa Tunari through Colonel Monroe for their support. 

Upon completion of the new Mirador, all the Capuchins being held in cages were moved in one day. The last monkey to be transferred was the group’s alpha – Monto.  Some volunteers had the crazy idea of building a runner that was over 400 meters from Quirqui’s house to Sonko’s old cage in order for him to reach the new mirador. This was an incredibly tricky runner to negotiate (both for volunteers and Monto!), but thanks to the intelligence and tenacity of Monto, he managed to overcome every obstacle in his path and arrived at his new home, where all the other monkeys in cages and on other runners were eagerly waiting for him. There are no words to express the emotion and feeling of satisfaction of witnessing this moment, after the tough days endured by those who worked tirelessly to allow the rapid construction of the new Monkey Mirador home.

After a physical examination of all of the free monkeys who had remained in the old mirador location, these were transferred and introduced to their new home. It was an invaluable experience to witness again the warmest of greetings between the free monkeys and those already established in their new home and see them explore every corner in order to recognize that place as their new home, while taking full advantage of the delicious insects and some wild fruits – delicacies of their new home. 

The work does not end here, and there is much to do: to improve and build more cages for implementing good management procedures, such as a new office, more environmental enrichment areas, new runners and more. We would like to highlight and reiterate our deep and sincere appreciation to all who were part of this process, who offered their help day after day to help build this dream and still offer their moral support from afar. Having suffered deeply, these capuchins now have a new opportunity to live like wild animals and the joy that they show teaches us that all is not lost and that the effort was worth it and this demonstrates again that together we can change reality . 

With much Love, Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi.

Noticias Del Mirador

Como es de conocimiento de todas las personas que estuvieron pendientes acerca de la problemática del camino que atraviesa el parque, lamentablemente por la falta de espacio se traslado el área de Mirador de Monos a un área cerca de la playa, una de las áreas más afectadas por la construcción del camino.

Debido a la fuerte temporada de lluvia y el desborde del rio Espíritu Santo, provocó la inundación de este lugar. Desgraciadamente este destastre natural causo la muerte de diez de nuestros hermanos capuchinos. Fueron días largos y duros despues del desastre para poder evacuar lo que quedaba del área y ofrecerles un espacio seguro al resto de los capuchinos - para esto se improviso la vieja área de manejo de Quirqui. La mayoría de ellos permanecieron en jaulas pequeñas esperando la conclusión de la nueva área del Mirador de Monos (ex casa de Sonko).

Gracias al trabajo y esfuerzo de aquellas personas que nos acompañaron en esos momentos duros se logró terminar la nueva jaula de Sonko para así comenzar la construcción del nuevo lugar. Aprovechamos la oportunidad para agradecer el esfuerzo y dedicación en especial a voluntarios antiguos, personal boliviano, y voluntarios nuevos, como también a los soldados de la Novena División de Villa Tunari a través del Coronel Monrroy por el apoyo prestado.

Una vez concluido parte de los trabajos para del nuevo hogar de los capuchinos se traslado en un día a todos aquellos que se encontraban en jaulas y dejando para el final a Monto el jefe del mirador. Para esto nacio una idea loca de colocar un runner de 400 metros de largo para llegar hasta nueva la jaula, una tarea dificil que ponia en duda su efectividad, pero gracias a la inteligencia y tenacidad de Monto, él logro superar cada obstáculo en su camino y llegar a su nuevo hogar donde todos los monos a pesar de estar en jaulas y algunos ya en runners lo esperaron con desesperación. Cada segundo que duró la travesía, creo que no existen las palabras suficientes para expresar la emotividad y el sentimiento de satisfacción después de jornadas de trabajos duros por parte de los que trabajaron sin descanso para presenciar ese momento.

Después de un examen clinico-fisico en general se procedio a la introducción en su nuevo hogar a todos aquellos que se encontraban libres en el viejo Mirador. Experiencia invaluable al poder presenciar nuevamente el saludo fraterno en especial con su jefe y verlos explorar cada rincon para reconocer ese lugar como su nuevo hogar, a la vez aprovechando a degustar un delicioso insecto y algún fruto silvestre que solo pueden conseguirlo estando libres.

El trabajo no termina aca, hay mucho por hacer, mejorar y construir más ambientes destinados a realizar un buen manejo,como ser, una nueva oficina, más ambientes, nuevas áreas de runners y mucho más, cabe resaltar y reiterar el agradecimiento profundo y sincero a todos los que fueron parte de este proceso, a los día que día ofrecieron sus manos para ayudar a construir este sueño y a los que aún en la distancia con el apoyo moral se hicieron presentes en nuestros corazones. Déspues de haber sufrido tanto estos capuchinos, ahora tienen una nueva oportunidad de realizarse como animales y la alegria que muestran nos enseña e creer que no todo esta perdido y que el esfuerzo realizado valio la pena y demostrarmos una vez más que unidos podemos cambiar una realidad.

Con cariño, COMUNIDAD INTI WARA YASSI.

The Mirador has moved!

 

On Friday 25th March the Mirador moved to its new location in Sonko´s old cage site. Thanks to the help of all the volunteers in Machia all the cages were taken up in the morning, and then the monkeys were brought up by the mirador team, vets, and the help of Nena, Vladi and Rusber.

The first attempts at cubing led to two of the free monkeys again free, but form was found after and by the end of the day all the monkeys except Monto, Congo, Freida and her new baby were in the new site in cages.

On the Saturday, the longest runner in CIWY history (400m) was used to get Monto up. It was connected to his cage behind the tourist office at one end and his new cage in the new mirador at the other. A hole was cut in his cage, he burst out and then used a truly amazing amount of strength and intelligence to get himself past all the trees and other blockades on his way up. His entrance to the mirador being met with screams from everyone, and looking like the true alpha he is! Hopefully some videos of this will be posted soon.

Now the real work begins, we have all the monkeys up, but still lack runners, a cage three set, concrete floors, an office and all the other stuff you need to run a successful Mirador.

A big thanks to all the Mirador crew that has worked really hard to get us there, especially the returnees. Also a special thanks to Nena, Lucho he have done everything in their power to get us in our new home. One final big thanks to Rusber, who help has been irreplaceable, he is shaping up to be a Mirador legend!

Mirador Update March 2011

As some people may know another tragedy has befallen the mirador. On the night of the 19th February a five foot wall of water passed through the mirador killing 10 of our beloved friends

·         Tom,

·         Benito,

·         Gamuza

·         Motelito,

·         Menono,

·         Tin Tin,

·         Tony Montana,

·         Eddie,

·         Jade,

·         Chispita

We believe and hope it happened suddenly. The water was from the main river and left everything in its path covered in black sand, the main river has never even entered the mirador. It is our belief that somewhere upstream something dammed the river and this then broke, sending a sudden surge of water downstream. For those of you who know the island, this was flattened and has now been almost completely washed away.

The remaining monkeys have been relocated to the area that was quirquis old house. The big guys are stuck in cages, but we have some runners for Oscar, Timo, Dennis and Rusber. We have returned to cord Fabrizio, Raffi, Tita and Romeo; Budiman, Kikeen and Marco get to spend every other day rolling around the new site in cubes, or trying to flying fox their cubes on the runners! Frida shares a cage with Monto and the new baby, Skinny is sharing with Pea and her new baby, all the others have their own cages. Duce and Botas are sharing a cage and competing with Raffi and Fabrizio to be the cutest dark and light monkey combination. Finally, Wedgewood obviously hates his caged life, but seeing him close up, you can see how large his hands and feet are and he will be the next beast!

Sonkos new cage was finished in a week and now we are starting work on the new mirador in Sonkos old cage location. Hopefully in a month we will have our new home and can really look to the future.

Thanks to everyone who helped give these guys the best possible life they could while here, I firmly believe they are now truly free and having the greatest monkey party ever……..except Tom, who finally got to that other world he lived in!

NUEVO! Fondo de Apoyo para los Jóvenes de CIWY

A veces estamos tan ocupados cuidando a los animales de CIWY, que es fácil olvidar que CIWY fue creado inicialmente para enseñar habilidades a niños menos privilegiados con el fin de mantenerse a sí mismos y sus familias, así como educarles en temas ambientales.

Muchos de ustedes conocen a algunos jóvenes que han crecido en los alrededores de los parques. A pesar de que todos estos niños tienen diferentes historias y circunstancias, todos vienen de casas menos afortunadas, muchos de los cuales vieron CIWY como su última oportunidad, antes de pasar a las calles. Con su ayuda, podemos preparar a estos jóvenes para un futuro mejor.

Haga click aqui para leer como puedes ayudar a estos jovenes.

Muchas gracias por su apoyo!

NEW! Youth Development Fund

Whilst we are so busy caring for the rescued animals of CIWY it is often easy to forget that CIWY was initially created in order to teach less privileged children skills in order to sustain themselves and their families, as well as educate them about their environment.

Many of you will be aware of some of the youth who have grown up in and around the parks. Although all of these children’s stories vary, they all come from less fortunate back grounds, many of whom saw CIWY as their last chance, before turning to the streets. With your help, we can prepare these youth for a better future.

Please click here to find out more about the youth of Inti Wara Yassi and how you can help them.

Many thanks for your support!

Nena en Londres

A pesar de las preocupaciones de que La Nena iba a perder su pasaporte o perderse entre Bolivia y Europa, ella llegó a Francia para la conferencia de ‘One Voice’ (haga clic aquí para ver la Nena hablando a bajo del Torre Eiffel) y disfrutó unos días de arte y cultura antes de su visita a Inglaterra.  

Durante cuatro días cortos ella cruzó de un extreme del país al otro, visitando el ‘Monkey Sanctuary’ en Cornwall, el Zoológico de Londres y el Instituto de Jane Goodall, además de pasar tiempo con amigos antiguos en Cambridge y Londres. Antes de la fiesta el Viernes en la noche, fuimos con la Nena a ver el musical de ‘Mama Mia’ (¡y los quienes conocen a la Nena saben que hablar de ‘Mama Mia’ – o mejor dicho cantar ‘Mama Mia’ - es su segundo tema favorito, después de hablar de los monos!). Llena de energía de Abba, fuimos a la fiesta a la cual participaron casi 40 voluntarios antiguos (muchos quienes eran difícil de reconocer sin sus botas de goma y con maquillaje) para ponerse al corriente de las cosas del  CIWY, recordar historias del parque y a charlar con amigos.

FIWY hizo un trabajo excelente en la organización de la fiesta, que incluyó un mensaje de video de Jane Goodall, regalos fantásticos en la rifa, fotos encima todas las paredes y del proyector de nuestros bebes, un mensaje de video desde Vladi, Benita, Luis, Rusber y muchos otros hermanos y hermanas desde el monte del Chapare, y último en orden pero no en importancia, la presencia de la Reina del Bosque – Nena. ¿Y lo mejor de todo? Esta fiesta maravillosa recaudó £981 ($1500) para CIWY, y estos fondos nos van a ayudar bastante en la construcción de la cuarentena en Jacq Cuisi… Sin embargo estamos convencidos de que lo podemos aumentar. Hasta los principios de Diciembre quisiéramos  recaudar $2000 para que no solamente podemos empezar los construcciones de la cuarentena, pero también podemos terminar la construcción de la primera fase de la clínica. Esto significaría que la DGB nos permitía  aceptar animales en Jacq Cuisi. Cualquier persona quien pueda ayudar en esta petición, por favor haga clic aquí para hacer una donación. ¿sí no podías asistir en la fiesta, porque no haces una donación de la cantidad de una entrada?

Muchísimas gracias a todos los que ayudaron con la organización de la fiesta, y también a los quienes asistieron a la fiesta. Los quienes no podían asistir en persona, asistieron en espíritu y esperamos verles en otro evento de CIWY, como el ‘Jungle Fever Boat Party’ Octubre 23 en Londres (por favor búscalo en el facebook), o, mejor, ¡vuelvan a Bolivia!

Después de una semana bastante ocupada en Inglaterra, estableciendo relaciones con el ‘Monkey Sanctuary’ y el Zoologico de Londres, donde existe ahora la posibilidad de hacer intercambios de empleados, tal como conocer la experta mundial en contracepción de primates, y formar una conexión formal con el Instituto de Jane Goodall y su programa de ‘Roots & Shoots’, terminó su visita a Inglaterra con una tarde de descanso en la playa de Brighton. Antes de volver a Bolivia, Nena ha viajado a Israel para relajarse y visitar a más voluntarios y amigos antiguos. Creo que todos podemos ponernos de acuerdo de que ella ha merecido esta vacación, ¡y la deseamos todo lo mejor para el resto de su viaje!

Nena in London

Despite all fears of Nena losing her passport or getting lost somewhere between Bolivia and Europe, she did indeed make it to France for the One Voice conference (click here to see Nena speaking below the Eiffel Tower) and enjoyed a few days of culture and art in the French capital, before her long awaited arrival in England.

A hectic schedule saw her crossing the country from London to Cornwall to visit The Monkey Sanctuary, back to London and up to Cambridge to visit an old friend and finally back to London in only four days. More meetings at London Zoo and the Jane Goodall Institute preceded a surprise visit to see Mama Mia on a West End stage (which many of you who know Nena will know is one of the only topics she can talk about almost as much as monkeys – or at least sing about). And although most people would be exhausted after such a hectic schedule, Nena was full of Abba energy for the CIWY fundraising party on Friday evening, which saw almost 40 previous volunteers (most of which were unrecognisable thanks to the addition of makeup and distinct absence of welly boots and mud stained shirts)  catching up, reminiscing, swapping their recent (or for many, not-so-recent) park stories and pulling out some truly authentic ‘park’ dance moves that we’re not quite sure London was ready for yet...

FIWY did an amazing job organising this special night that was jam packed with highlights from the personalised video message from Jane Goodall, to the phenomenal raffle presents, the photos of our babies pinned over all the walls and projected through the room, the video message from Vladi, Benita, Luis, Rusben and many other Bolivians straight from the Chapare jungle, and the presence of the ‘Reina del Bosque’ herself, Nena. And the best bit? Whilst having an amazing night we also managed to raise £981 for CIWY, which will make a significant contribution towards construction materials for the quarantine area in Jacq Cuisi. However... we still think that we can do better than that! Our aim is to get this sum total up to £2000 by the beginning of December in order to both start the quarantine construction AND complete the first stages of the clinic, so that in accordance with DGB guidelines, we are able to start accepting animals in Jacq Cuisi in the new year. If anyone reading this is a fan of round numbers and would like to help make this already impressive sum of money reach the £2000 mark, please click here to donate. Or if you wanted to come to the party but couldn’t make it, why not just donate the ticket amount?

Many thanks to those who helped organise this fantastic event, and to all those who were able to attend and make this night such a huge success. Those of you who were not able to attend in person, were with us in spirit and we hope to see you at another CIWY event in the future, such as the Jungle Fever Boat Party on October 23rd in London (check out the Face Book event) or, even better, back in Bolivia!

After an incredibly productive time in the UK, making connections with both the Monkey Sanctuary and London Zoo, both of which we may be able to carry out staff exchanges with, as well as meeting the leading expert in Primate contraception, and creating a formal link with The Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots and Shoots programme, Nena’s time came to a slightly more relaxed end with an afternoon of relaxation on the beach in Brighton. Nena is now continuing her trip with a visit to Israel where she will hopefully be able to enjoy a slightly slower pace of ‘holiday’ than her time in Europe.   I think we can all agree that she has more than deserved this break, and so we wish her all the very best for the rest of her holiday!

Nueva Carretera - 27 de Septiembre 2010

"Hola a todos

Después de muchos meses luchando en contra la carretera, apoyado por el Alcalde de Villa Tunari, la Alcaldía de Cochabamba, y hasta el assistente del Presidente, hemos perdido la batalla. Al fondo fue por los campesinos, quiénes nos enfrentaron con la amenaza de tomar el parque a la fuerza. ¡Querían hacer huelgas de hambre en Cochabamba y tristemente esto es la manera en la cual se puede lograr un permite ambiental en Bolivia! Para estar bastante preparados y para asegurar que ningun animal fue herido por las maquinas hemos trabajado con el alcalde de Villa Tunari.

Las tres maquinas pasaron desde la comunidad Copacabana hasta la oficina de Turistas del Parque Machía a través de dos derumbes. Es una situación bastante triste y he incluido fotos. ¡Me imagino que la carretera se va a derumbar al Rio Espiritu Santo antes del final de esta temporada de lluvia!

Bulldosers Sep 2010.JPG

Pero hay que buscar lo bueno en cada situación, y los monos en el nuevo parque de monos y parque de negros ahora están comiendo desde platos suspendidos por los arboles y ya no pasan tanto tiempo en el suelo, y parece que el gato está muy feliz en su nueva jaula grande.

Ahora estamos preparando para la temporada de lluvia y los derumbes que van a pasar, y estamos asegurando que todos los animales están protegidos en sus lugares. Por esto estamos moviendo al mirador y al Gato.

Monkey Park - Sep 2010.JPG

Entonces, ¡cualquier voluntario quien pueda volver a Bolivia, necesitamos su ayuda, de forma física financiera!”

Road Update - 27th September 2010

"Hola a todos

After fighting in every way possible, from the local mayor, through the local council of Cochabamba and all the way to the Presidents right hand man, we have finally lost the battle against the road. It basically came down to the fact that the campisinos threatened to take the park by force, and start hunger strikes in Cochabamba, and that’s how you get an environmental permit in Bolivia. So to ensure the safety of the animals we have worked with the mayor to ensure no animals were caught in the way of the machines and that we were as best prepared as possible.Bulldosers - Sep 2010

All three machines have passed from Comunidad Copocabana to the tourist entrance of Machia. They have carved there way through both last years landslide and the old landslide between spider park and Gatos cage. It is a very depressing site and I have included some photos for you all to see. I imagine the road will be located firmly on the banks of the rio spirito santo before next wet season comes to a close.

Monkey Park destruction - Sep 2010

As the saying goes, every black cloud has a silver lining, well there has been one here. The new monkey areas have monkeys eating in trees, and Gato appears to be fine in his larger new home.

We are now involved in the next stage, getting ready to watch Machia fall in the river and make sure none of our animals are affected, to this end we will be moving Gato, the Mirador before the wet season starts and preparing to be able to move both Monkey park and Spider park depending on how drastic the landslides are.

So with all that is planned, any old volunteers that feel like now is the time for a vacation back to the park, we really need help, both physically and financially!"

Noticias del camino – 7 de septiembre

7 de septiembre del 2010

Como muchos seguramente ya saben, el camino ya se está construyendo en Machia, las maquinas han empezado a trabajar desde el lado de la comunidad de Baja Copacabana y están avanzando rápidamente hacia el parque, pensamos que van a llegar en estos días. Hemos logrado trasladar con éxito los tres áreas afectas – el parque de monos, parque de negros y Gato.

El parque de monos se encuentra más arriba por el cerro, y hemos aprovechado esta oportunidad de mejorar nuestros métodos de trabajo, sus platos de comida ahora están dentro de los arboles, es increíble poder ver a los monos comiendo dentro de sus árboles. El parque de negros se ha trasladado a la jaula antigua de Luna, también estamos cambiando nuestras prácticas de trabajo con ellos, con comida dentro de los árboles y cuerdas para runners mas arriba. Desafortunadamente, aun nos falta atrapar uno de los machos, así que algunos de los monos con cuerda están más cerca al piso para su seguridad, hasta que logremos atrapar al macho. Gato está en la jaula antigua de los albifrones, lo cual es mucho más grande que su jaula anterior, y parece que está bien allí.

Todavía tenemos mucho trabajo en este tiempo difícil, para poder hacer todos estos cambios, y estamos con pocos voluntarios. Necesitamos voluntarios en todas las áreas, y también cualquier apoyo que pueden dar seria agradecido, ya que nuestros recursos financieros están muy bajos por lo de los cambios.

Gracias!

Road Update - 7th September

7th of September 2010

As many people are aware the road is going ahead in Machia, the machines have started at the Copacabana end and are making their way rapidly towards the park, we expect them to arrive in the next couple of days. We have successfully moved the three affected areas, the Monkey Park, Spider Monkey Park and Gato.

The Monkey Park is now located further up the hill, and we have taken this opportunity to improve our working methods, their plates are now in the trees and it is amazing to watch all the monkeys eating and staying up in the tress. The Spider Park has moved to Luna's old cage, and we are also changing their work practices, with food in the trees and more high runners. Unfortunately, one of the machos is yet to be trapped, so some of the corded monkeys will stay close to the ground for safety until the macho is caught. Gato has moved to the old Albifron cage, which is significantly larger and he seems to doing fine.

We still have a lot of work to do in this difficult time to see these changes through, and are desperately short of volunteers. Volunteers are needed in all areas and any help anyone can give, as financial resources have been drained, is highly appreciated.

The Frustrations of working in conservation

August 17th 2010

Anyone who has worked in conservation for some time will be able to relate to this story. After nearly 15 years of work at the Parque Machia wild animal refuge in Bolivia, where hundreds of species of monkey, parrot, turtle, puma and jaguar have been cared for, and many released, a completely illogical decision to build a road through the reserve has been taken by the local government, and will destroy much of the park which is home to so many of these creatures rescued from captivity

Destruction August 2010      Destruction August 16th 3.jpg

The road is being built to create greater access for communities further into the forest, but there have been countless reasons shown why the road is not for anyone's benefit. Apart from the fact that it will destroy an entire ecosystem for the animals and the forest they live in, the land is not stable enough to support the construction of a road, landslides after just one wet season will wash the entire project away. There are more appropriate routes for this road, but this happens to be the cheapest option in the short term.

Park destrcution   Destruction August 16th 4.jpg

Members of the forest community came into the park yesterday and started clearing the forest with machetes, without any authorisation from the government and without giving any prior warning to the park. The animals had not been moved yet and were forced to move as the trees they were sitting in were cut down. Volunteers in the park have posted more images of the destruction so far on Facebook, you can view them here

Inti Wara Yassi, the organisation which manages the park, has been aware of this threat for some time and has been doing all it can to prepare for this eventuality. They now have two privately owned reserves (Machia is a state owned park) in Bolivia where they are hoping to move as many of the animals as possible, sadly though, many of the animals released into Machia will not be able to be moved, and their future is extremely uncertain.

Staff  and volunteers in Bolivia, as well as all of us over here, are doing as much as we can to reverse the local government's decision to build the road, but the way local politics works in Bolivia suggests it will be difficult.

These are very sad and frustrating times, but are also times when we need to offer our support more than ever.

We are trying one last time to spread the word and prevent this senseless destruction and are sending a press release to as many people as will receive it. Please help us by spreading the word to any organisation or media source you think will be interested to know.

Une Nueva Jaula para Millie - Gracias

Queremos agradecer a todos quienes han apoyado nuestra peticion para construir una nueva jaula para Millie, un ocelote en el Parque Machia que tiene 9 anyos.
Millie.jpg 
Como muchos saben, Millie llego en el parque cuando tenia solamente tres semanas, despues de que cazadores mataron a su mama para vender su pelo. La jaula de Millie ya no esta suficiente grande para ella y debido a xxxxx hay que reemplazarlo.
Gracias a su generosidad podemos construir una nueva jaula para Millie con mas espacio para arboles y para su diversion. La nueva jaula tendra aproximamente doble el tamanyo de su jaula corriente, construido por materiales nuevos y reciclados, con bastante espacio para mantenerla segura y abrigada.
 
Gracias a todos para su apoyo. Les voy a enviar fotos de una Millie muy feliz cuando este en su nueva jaula!

A new Cage for Millie - Thank you

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported our appeal to build a new cage for Millie, a 9year old Ocelot living at Parque Machia.

Millie photo by Molly Jorges

As many of you know Millie was brought to us at just three weeks old after her mother had been killed and sold for her coat.  Millie has grown out of her current cage and due to it's age and general wear and tear it really needed replacing. 

Thanks to your generosity we can now build her a new cage with more room and trees for her to enjoy. The new cage will be approximately double the size of her current cage, be made of new and recycled materials and provide plenty of shelter to keep her safe and sound.

Thank you to everyone for your support, I look forward to updating you with photo's of Millies looking very happy in her new cage soon.

Parque Machia's newest pumita needs a name! 

The young pumita has been with Inti Wara Yassi at Parque Machía for over a month now and she is sadly still nameless. She arrived from a private home in the south of Bolivia where she was being illegally kept as a pet. The police found out about her and the family moved her to another house to avoid confiscation but she managed to escape and was later found wandering the streets of the town. The police banged her up in a cell for 2 days and CIWY managed to rescue her from a lengthy jail stay. She is estimated to be about a year old and is rapidly winning the hearts of the volunteers at Machía. KP reports that she's like a little Luna (without the bung eye) and by all accounts is equally as feisty.

Name our new puma

However, not only does she need a name, she also will need a home. To help with the construction costs of her new home we are auctioning off the rights to name this gorgeous female puma.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120563763684&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:GB:1123

The cost of building an adequate enclosure for her as she begins to outgrow her temporary accommodation is quite substantial so we are asking you to please be generous and bid high, $5,000 will build an adequate cage, if we can raise more then we can get an even bigger and better one for this lovely young pumita.

We are also setting up a fundraising page on the virgin giving website for those of you that cant afford to bid for naming rights, but would like to contribute towards costs in some way.

http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserPage.action?userUrl=SupportVillaMaria&pageUrl=4

All donations will be very gratefully accepted and will go directly to the construction costs of her cage which are to be finalised. Thanks, as always, for all your kindness and support. CIWY's global family is vital to its daily running and survival and we appreciate and value any support you can give.

CIWY tiene un nuevo presidente!

El día sábado 6 de marzo del 2010 fue un día tanto feliz como triste para CIWY. Triste porque nuestro fundador Juan Carlos Antezana ya no es el presidente de la comunidad. Los últimos años de estrés y preocupación han afectado a todos, y por lo tanto fue decidido por todos los socios activos de CIWY que hacía falta un cambio. A la vez, tenemos la buena noticia de que la vicepresidente Nena Baltazar ha aceptado el puesto de presidente titular, hasta realizar las elecciones de fin de año.

 

Juan Carlos fundo CIWY hace mas de 15 años con un grupo pequeño de jóvenes accionistas Bolivianas, ahora ha llegado a ser una comunidad internacional con más de 10,000 defensores, y miles de animales han sido rescatados del cautiverio gracias al trabajo inspirado de CIWY en sus parques Machia, Ambue Ari y Jacj Cuisi. Nos comprometemos con todas las personas que han sido conectadas con CIWY a lo largo de los años, de continuar este legado con la misma filosofía bajo su nuevo liderazgo. Juan Carlos se mantendrá como socio vitalicio de la comunidad.

New President of CIWY Elected!

Saturday 6th March 2010 was both a happy and a sad day for CIWY. Sad because our founder Juan Carlos Antezana is no longer president of the Community, the last few years of stress and strain had taken their toll and it was agreed by all active associates of CIWY that it was time for a change. The good news however is that vice president Nena Baltazar has accepted the role of acting president until the next election at the end of the year.

 

Juan Carlos founded CIWY over 15 years ago as a small action group of young Bolivians, it has since grown into an international community with tens of thousands of supporters and thousands of animals having been saved from captivity, thanks to CIWY’s inspirational work at their parks Machia, Ambue Ari and Jacj Cuisi. We owe it to all the people who have been involved with CIWY over the years to continue this legacy in the same vein under its new leadership. Juan Carlos is to remain a lifetime associate of the community.

Recreate CIWY in the woods of England

On the 12 and 13 June, there will be a camping weekend to help us remember our Bolivian home that often seems too far away. There will be dirt, laughter, singing, chicken, mucho rum and maybe some animals too. Put the date in your diaries now! An annual reunion is well overdue for us CIWYians, and hopefully we can raise some money for these kids at the same time. If you have any questions or want to get involved, please email me youngpeopleCIWY@hotmail.com.

Divisions within the CIWY Directive

This news item has been written by the UK Charity Friends of Inti Wara Yassi, in our capacity as administrators of the CIWY website and a focal point for international fundraising for the CIWY refuges.

We are aware of a division between members of the CIWY directive in Bolivia, and a process has been initiated in Bolivia to resolve this situation. Whilst we are still 100% dedicated to supporting the work of CIWY in Bolivia, we are currently holding back any funds received into the charity until the situation has been resolved.

The parks are still going ahead as normal, and there is still the same need for support for the development of the parks, and care for the animals. Please be assured that all your donations will still be going to the right place.

At the same time, we would like to make clear our support for Tania Baltazar and everyone who works with her in everything that they do for CIWY. We have no doubt of their integrity and dedication to the project.

Name the new born Capuchin Monkey

Please support the reconstruction of the Mirador in Parque Machia by bidding to name the new born Capuchin Monkey.

It is the baby of Juanita, and its healthy and growing fast. Juanita is looking after it well but it needs a name – and that’s where you come in. We are running an eBay auction and the winner will get to name the new baby, the money raised will go toward the relocation and reconstruction costs of a new mirador since the existing mirador has fallen victim to massive landslides and the destabilisation of the surrounding jungle as a direct result of the clearance that was done in preparation for the road last year.

The relocation of the mirador is a huge and very urgent project and the funds raised by this auction will be very gratefully received. The parks are very low on volunteer numbers and this means that all the money coming into the park is being spent directly on the daily running costs of the park and there are currently little or no funds available for this project. Please see the Inti Wara Yassi facebook page under the discussion 'mirador updates' for further information about the relocation of the mirador. As always, please dig deep and give generously. If you don’t wish to bid but would like to help out financially donations can also be made directly through the website at www.intiwarayassi.org whatever you can donate will make a difference.  Thank you.

Agradecimiento a Esperanza Fernandez

Esperanza ha sido la palabra de su nombre, en emprendimientos como el Machía y el Ambue Ari, la esperanza de la Amazonia que es lo último que hay que salvar.

La conexión con Jean Goodall.

También seriamos injustos si no recordamos a los que hicierón posible, la construcción de la Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi, que sin ningún interés han puesto su grano de arena, así como ahora lo pone Espernaza. Queremos mencionar a Beatriz Quevedo quien subio junto a Juan Carlos Antezana Pérez a una zona marginada llamada 21 de Diciembre, donde no había agua y para ir al baño había que caminar como 500 metros y hacer las necesidades en pleno frío o viento y nevada, en esta zona nacio la Comunidad con el nombre de Inti Wara, viviendo con los niños de la zona: soñando y teniendo la Esperanza de hacer algo por la humanidad. Sandra también ayudo y se fue cuando se caso, con ella en el camino al Choro le aumentamos la palabra Yassi a nuestra querida Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi junto a Jaimito Ramos y los demas niños y niñas.

Juan Carlos Antezana Pérez

Presidente

Jane Goodall's Visit

DSC01462.JPG

Inti Wara Yassi was incredibly fortunate last week to have a visit from UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall. She was visiting Bolivia as part of a South American tour, where she was giving talks to many different groups of people about her work to help prevent the destruction of our planet.

A few years ago, she had named the head of the Inti Wara Yassi animal sanctuaries - Juan Carlos Antezana, pictured above with Jane - as one of her "Heroes of the Planet" in an Animal Planet documentary, but this was the first time she had the chance to meet him in person.

DSC01250.JPG

Jane with Nena at Parque Machia

Her visit coincided with that of a group of children from a local orphanage. The combination of protecting animals and working with disadvantaged children was something which fitted in perfectly with her Roots and Shoots educational programme, which she is planning on launching in Bolivia.

We were all honored to meet her as she is a truly inspirational woman.

Thank you

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to the Jacj Cuisi urgent appeal, I am delighted to announce that not only have we reached the funds needed to secure the land but you have surpassed it. 

Any donations that are not needed for the land purchase will go towards developing the infrastructure of the park and are just as import for securing its safety and success over the coming years.

On behalf of everyone at Inti Wara Yassi in Bolivia, the UK and from all four corners of the globe thank you. Everyone who has supported this appeal whether by donating, spreading the word or both has made this happen.

Please stay in touch by checking the website

And you can also stay in touch by becoming a friend

Park destruction continues in midst of false promises

Diggers entering the park without permission

Yesterday was another sad say for Parque Machia and for conservation in Bolivia. Last week the Bolivian Environment Agency (DGB) made an agreement with the local mayor's office in Villa Tunari, that no more work would be done on the road until a new home was made for the animals in its path. Well yesterday (18th September), the destruction of the park continued in spite of this agreement. Trees fell onto monkey runners in the mirador section of the park, even a volunteer was nearly crushed by a falling tree.

We ask that this blatant disregard for the environment AND their own laws be denounced through any means possible, contact your local paper, your national TV station, anyone which could help to cease this carnage.

THE FUTURE OF PARQUE MACHIA AT RISK!!

The machines get closer to the Park

In early August 2008, we received a visit from public works technicians from the Mayors office in Villa Tunari, with the view to inspecting Parque Machia as a route for a new planned road. Following the visit, we requested further information from the Mayors office about the planned project. Following this request, the 19th of August, we receive an official notification from the Mayor’s office – CITE H.A.M V.T Nº 884-08 – inviting us to a meeting to discuss this project. This meeting was attended by only one of the public works technicians (none of the council officials), where a five minute talk informed us of the definitive decision to open a road through the Park. The main reasons given for the opening of the road were to give more access for the communities further into the forest, and to allow greater access for tourism in vehicles.

To determine the opening of this road, many criteria were not considered, such as:

  • Environmental impact
  • The impact of this work on the park.
    • The geographical and topographic characteristics of the entire park will be seriously affected by this project, particularly since the park has enjoyed a relative protection to date, allowing a huge diversity of flora not found in much of the area due to colonisation.
  • The great majority of the park is made up of steep hills, the few relatively flat areas are the ones where our work with the animals is carried out. This road would rob us of practically all of these areas.

The areas which would be directly affected would be the following

  • The monkey park, where several species of monkey are cared for and fed – capuchins, spider monkeys, squirrel monkeys.
  • Areas where tortoices, agoutis, coatis are kept.
  • The spider monkey park.
  • The enclosures for three of our felines – Leoncio, Gato and Luna
  • The “mirador” area, where abused and mistreated capuchin monkeys are rehabilitated.
  • The enclosure for the endangered Spectacled Bear.
  • Many of the trails which are used for walking the cats.

This is why we have concluded that no consideration has been made for the wellbeing of the animals, not to mention the fact that Parque Machia is considered an area of National Heritage, meaning no damage to the biological, genetic and ecological diversity should be allowed.

On the 20th August the same year, we received a communication from the Mayor’s office, we were instructed that the animals would need to be moved and accommodated elsewhere, to allow the start of construction. We were visited by members fo the council on the 27th August, consisting of the director of environment, director of tourism, two councillors, an architect, civil engineer and a representative of the company contracted to open the road, who informed us we had 5 days to move and re house the animals.

An appeal was made to the local authorities and to the press, and the work was stopped. The  Mayor stated to the press that the road would no longer be made.

This turned out to be a lie, because this year the work began again to open the road. We appealed again to the environmental and local authorities to explain what this would mean. At this point the National Environment Agency (DGBAP) intervened, but even they did not have the power to stop this destruction.

That said, the Mayor of Villa Tunari commited to provide new land for the expanson of the land – although this never took place.

Even more shocking was, this year on the 18th August, the work began on opening the road, without any authorization from the authorities or any environmental impact study – a legal requirement.

The animals are already being affected by this work. The noise from the tractors and chainsaws are making many of the primates and felines more aggresive, and many of the animals are being scared off, putting their lives in serious danger.

WHEN THE LAST TREE IS CUT,

WHEN THE LAST RIVER IS CONTAMINATED,

WHEN THE LAST ANIMAL IS KILLED

ONLY THEN WILL MAN REALISE THAT WE CANNOT SURVIVE WITH MONEY ALONE....!!!

The Jacuizzi Donators Group

Inti Wara Yassi is in the process of purchasing 300 hectares (that's 560 football pitches!) of rainforest to be conserved as part of a new park called Jacj Cüisi which means 'Promised Lands'. The new park will be used to relocate some of our existing animals and accommodate the increasing numbers of animals that arrive at CIWY.

A group of past volunteers have just started a facebook site to raise money for the remainder of funds for jacj cuisi...unfortunately people are calling it jacuzzi as that is what it kind of sounds like...

Join the Jacuzzi Donators Group!

The cost of the park is $20'000 US dollars. Inti Wara Yassi managed to find $10'000 USD and has put down a deposit for the land. BUT we still need $10'000 to pay the final balance by the deadline in October 2009! If we don't find the money the dreams and hopes for the new park will be lost.

ADA e Inti Wara Yassi se unen para defender a los animales del maltrato

La Asociación de Defensa de los Animales (ADA) y los voluntarios de ecologistas Intiwara Yasi, pese a que en el pasado expresaron sus diferencias metodológicas, se unieron para enfrentar el maltrato y tráfico de los animales a través de la Asociación Animalista Boliviana que conformarán varias instituciones.
El representante de Intiwara Yasi, Juan Carlos Antezana, dijo que nadie frena el tráfico de animales silvestres y la prohibición de espectáculos pese a la existencia de normas locales. Los operativos de control de venta de animales en la zona del mercado La Pampa son inútiles frente a la presión social y la cantidad de mercaderes.
Así también observó en los medios de comunicación publicidades de espectáculos de animales silvestres y la Alcaldía no está haciendo nada.
El voluntario recordó que hace un par de meses la ex fiscal de medio ambiente hizo varios decomisos en el mercado, en su intento por hacer cumplir las leyes, en algunos casos inició proceso pero no hubo más avances en la investigación.
Antezana espera que la nueva autoridad ambiental continúe con las investigaciones para sentar algún precedente sobre el maltrato y tráfico de animales.

Primera acción

Una de las primeras acciones de la Asociación Animalista Boliviana será hacer cumplir las ordenanzas municipales y la aprobación de una ley contra el tráfico de animales.
Por su parte, la representante de ADA, Liliana Téllez, dijo que además de la unión, las instituciones continuarán ayudando a los animales de la forma que saben hacerlo; por un lado, el rescate de animales domésticos y silvestres, por otro lado.
Como símbolo de amor a los animales y el esfuerzo separado de ambas instituciones, ayer, en forma pública intercambiaron regalos, dos animales de peluche que representa el quehacer de cada uno de los representantes.

House has been bought!

Monday 10th March 2008 

We're delighted to say that the house (which was campaigned for back in last September) has finally been bought and contracts have exchanged hands. After a long and drawn out process, where negotiations seemed to be never ending, both buyers and sellers came to an agreement, and CIWY's place in Villa Tunari is so much more secure than it has ever been.

The ownership of the building which houses the cafe, clinic and vet's accommodation, plus the Casa de Voluntarios, plus land behind where the quarantine areas are, allows the park to make the improvements they have been wanting to for many years but haven't been able to as the buildings weren't theirs. The food preparation area will move to the casa, as will a more organised administration area, both of which were essential improvements to be able to gain the "official eco-park" status from the Bolivian government.

Once again, THANK YOU to everyone who has helped!

A message from Juan Carlos Antezana, Founder of Inti Wara Yassi

Dear volunteers!
 
 
For me it is a great joy to have you working here at the Inti Wara Yassi refuges. Working non-stop to help our brothers and sisters, the pumas, jaguars, monkeys, birds and snakes! God bless you, you are the 'Inti Wara Yassis', you are the people who have gained our highest respect because you are working not for yourself, but for a whole community of people here in Bolivia, our family of children, people, animals that all wish to defend life. Although this takes a lot of sacrifice we have managed together to set up these two refuges to give the animals a second chance and to give you the opportunity of helping out.
 
 
I wish you all the best for 2008! That it may be a year full of success stories.
 
 
Say it aloud to the world: say the word Inti, the word Wara, the word Yassi!

Urgent Appeal Update

Very happy to let you know that we've raised and sent $34,000 / £17,000 to Bolivia ! ! ! ! ! This should cover the asking price and the legal fees....

The response was absolutely incredible - everyone around the world chipped in and I was getting 3 or 4 big donations every day on PayPal alone - I've no idea what the bank account looked like except that WE'VE MADE IT ! ! ! And that the response of everyone around the world is absolutely incredible - I've never known a fundraising drive like it ! I first posted this to the website only 2.5 weeks ago.....(although it was on facebook etc before this).

Obviously we've still got to go through all the legal processes and we can't completely relax until everything's signed, but even though there's still this uncertainty we thought it best to let everyone know how amazing everyone's been.

A special mention must be made of the Gibson family and Castle Precision Engineering, who donated an unbelievable $20,000 / £10,000.

All the very best to everyone - * * * * you're amazing ! ! ! ! ! ! ! * * * * Chris

Urgent Appeal!

Sadly Nena and Juan Carlos have just been informed that the area at the front of Parque Machia, Villa Tunari,
consisting of 'the casa' in which many of the Bolivian workers live alongside some temporary
volunteers, the volunteer cafe, the veterinary clinic, the monkey quarantine and the small animals area are
no longer to be rented to them. The woman who owns the buildings and land now wants to sell it and has given
them 2 weeks to find US$30,000 to buy it, or she will sell it to her son who is likely it seems to turn
the area into a restaurant. I cannot stress enough how vital this area is to the park and how devastating it
would be to loose it, so please if you can spare even a tiny donation, click here to visit the donate page.

US Visa Change

From 1 Dec you will need a visa to enter Bolivia:

This Warden Message is being issued to notify American citizens traveling to and residing in Bolivia of the new visa requirement for American citizens entering Bolivia as tourists. The Bolivian government announced earlier this month that effective December 1, 2007, U.S. citizens seeking to enter Bolivia as tourists must first obtain an entry visa from a Bolivian diplomatic post nearest their place of residence by submitting an application, and presenting documentation that includes proof of economic solvency, itinerary and lodging, a police record , and yellow fever vaccination. The U.S. Embassy in La Paz, Bolivia has requested clarification regarding this policy and we are awaiting further information from Bolivian officials. Please continue to direct specific inquiries to the Bolivian Embassy in Washington or your nearest Bolivian Consulate (see here for contact information). If you are in Bolivia, please contact Bolivian Immigration Services at 211-0960. An unofficial translation of the Bolivian government decree can be found on the U.S. Embassy website here.

Flyer for prospective volunteers created

Print a few out and spread the word if you expect to be passing a sympathetic vets, zoo, cafe, ethical shop, charity, charity shop, community centre, travel agents, library, travel shop, book shop, festival, ethical exhibition, farmers' market, college, university.........
 
Everyone should have the CIWY-experience!! Also, people that plan for it before they leave are likely to stay longer - which is what both refuges are always desperate for in order to develop...

Message from Nena - news about Sama

We are very happy because for long time we had a dream about giving Sama a better life and I want to tell you that thanks to God this dream has come true. Thanks to a person who felt in her heart the need to give a big donation to buy the construction materials, this person is Vanesa, whom we'd like to thank from our heart and we wish God will bless her through her life. We would also like to thank Quest Overseas and specially Tim's group because it was them who did the toughest work carrying the stones and all the materials. Thanks to all the volunteers in Ambue Ari who help with this work next to Quest people. We also did a party in Ambue to collect some money to buy the cement. Before we had built a cage for Sama and then a small enclosed space with the money we had from the donations for him. Now he can enjoy a space that is wider, bigger, prettier and full of trees . While we were building he was very relaxed because he knew this was for his own benefit. Thanks, thanks to everyone who helped to make this dream come true and also thanks to those who constantly express their concerns........

Now we have new projects to continue improving the life conditions of our brothers/friends,

All of you receive a big hug with lots of love from the Bolivian family
INTI WARA YASSI

Juan Carlos, Nena and all the volunteers,
Bolivia

Hombre enjaulado en defensa de los animales

Ante la mirada sorprendida de los transeúntes que pasaban por la Plaza de los Héroes de la principal ciudad de Bolivia La Paz, ayer a horas 10:00 a.m. Juan Carlos Antezana Pérez se enjaulaba en una jaula de 0.60cm x 0.60cm, exigiendo que el Parlamento Nacional haga un juicio de responsabilidades a las autoridades que no cumplieron con la ley y no hicieron cumplir esta en los gobiernos anteriores, sirviendo como escarmiento a los cómplices y una voz de alerta para el actual gobierno.

Jane Goodall Chooses Juan Carlos Antezana As One Of Her Heroes

Catch the Jane Goodall's Heroes special on Animal Planet - let Jane Goodall introduce you to five extraordinary people who are an inspiration in making the world a better place for animals. Jane will share the personal stories of five of her heroes, including the story of Juan Carlos Antezana as he connects the children of Bolivia with endangered wildlife through his amazing sanctuary. 

Jane Goodall is internationally acclaimed for making the world a better place for animals, and it is great to see Juan Carlos and the community getting some recognition for their selfless dedication to this cause. Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi was also awarded $5000 for this by Animal Planet, which Jane Goodall doubled with her own donation of $5000. Needless to say this means so much to everyone in the community, and makes such a difference to the lives of our many guests.

Ecological Prisoners

On Friday 9th December 2005, in front of the Bolivian parliament, Juan Carlos Antezana Pérez, Nena Baltazar Lugones and Adolfo Lino tried to chain themselves to a tree to represent the social ecological movement, and were violently apprehended by the police. After being sprayed with tear gas, Juan Carlos was dragged by the same chain with which he was attached to the tree and imprisoned for eight hours. All they are demanding is that a Ministry of the Environment is established in the new Bolivian government - disgracefully lacking in a country with such a threatened and incredible natural heritage.
