Challenge

Poachers killed Kusiy's mother when he was just an infant, in order to sell him on the black market. CIWY managed to rescue him, but he will sadly never be able to survive in the wild. Now four years old, Kusiy's physical power has begun to test the strength of his fencing. The possibility of escape poses great danger to the sanctuary staff and animals, and to Kusiy himself. The enclosure is also too small for a jaguar and lacks trees that are essential for natural behaviours, such as climbing.

Solution

Kusiy's quality of life will vastly improve in this thoughtfully designed enclosure. It will be set in lush jungle to ensure his space is full of trees to climb and forest to explore. The structure consists of a large hexagonal enclosure connected to a management cage by a tunnel, with double security doors. Kusiy has many more years ahead of him, and this enclosure will provide the closest experience possible to life in the wild.

Long-Term Impact

CIWY helps preserve the biodiversity of Amazonian fauna by rescuing a wide array of animals, including endangered species (and near threatened species like jaguars). CIWY also works to end wildlife trafficking and educate the public. This particular enclosure will always accommodate Ambue Ari's largest feline. *Note: If we are fortunate enough to receive more funding than needed to build Kusiy's enclosure, additional funds will be directed to other animal enclosure projects or repairs.
