Summary

Help protect CIWY's wildlife sanctuaries! The 2020 wildfires destroyed over 400 hectares of Ambue Ari's land. In 2021 we managed to keep the fires off our land, thanks to amazing volunteers and donors like you. In 2022, wildfire reached Jacj Cuisi for the first time. Please help us protect these critical wildlife habitats from increasingly severe Amazon fires.

Challenge

The widespread practice of slash-and-burn agriculture, coupled with the effects of climate change, results in devastating forest fires throughout the Amazon. CIWY's Ambue Ari sanctuary comprises 983 hectares of Amazon rainforest -- 30% of the area is devoted to the rehabilitation of rescued wildlife, while the majority of the land is left as untouched habitat. CIWY's Jacj Cuisi Sanctuary, previously outside of the danger zone, is now at risk too, as the Amazon fires grow larger and fiercer.

Solution

We are better equipped to fight fires at Ambue Ari than we have ever been, thanks to new wells and equipment acquired in recent years. But the fires get worse each year, and we need funds to pay for temporary fire-fighting workers, and supplies like gasoline and protective gear. Your donation will help provide salaries to out-of-work Bolivians. Additionally, CIWY now has to protect Jacj Cuisi from fires as well. A motorbike would allow us to reach hotspots through JC's difficult terrain.

Long-Term Impact

If successful, over 1000 hectares of Amazon rainforest will be protected from fires. You will play a part in safeguarding the incredible species that live wild and free in this critical habitat, including the jaguar, puma, ocelot, tapir, howler monkey, and giant anteater. CIWY helps preserve the biodiversity of Amazonian fauna by rescuing and protecting a wide array of animals, including endangered species. CIWY also educates the public to respect wildlife and the environment.
