Roll over image to zoom in
Provide a safe home for Amazonian monkeys and macaws rescued from illegal trafficking.
La Senda Verde is a privately run Bolivian animal sanctuary that has become one of Bolivia's leading wilderness gateways. The sanctuary works with local community schools as part of a program for conservation and against illegal traffic of wild animals and is currently caring for more than 350 animals, all of them rescued from trafficking.
Some of the inhabitants you'll be helping include squirrel monkeys (Saimiri boliviensis), spider monkeys (Ateles chamek), intelligent Capuchin monkeys (Cebus libidinosus), red howler monkeys (Alouatta sara), as well as red and blue macaws: beautiful, social birds who have been rescued from lonely and crippling lives in cages as pets.
You can help. Your caring donation of $15 provides food and care for a rescued Amazonian monkey or macaw for one week.
