Dear Supporters,

Donors like you have helped CIWY survive some very difficult setbacks in the past 2 years. Our volunteer programme is just starting to bounce back, as travel restrictions ease, but donations continue to account for CIWY’s largest source of funding. Somewhat miraculously, the three sanctuaries have not gone a day without sufficient food and medicine for the 500+ animals in our care, and we thank you for making that possible.

Construction is moving along at Jacj Cuisi and we have now made three successful transfers of animals from Machia. There is still much more to build, however, before we can move the rest of the animals to their new home in the “Land of Dreams.”

Anonymous Matching Donor:

You may be aware that we have a separate GlobalGiving page devoted to the Jacj Cuisi Construction and Move. An anonymous donor in the UK has been supporting that project with very generous matching donations.

At the end of 2021, when the page reached £10,000 ($13,500 USD), they matched it with another £10,000! (Paid mostly through bank transfer.)

Then they matched the next £5,000 raised and pledged to do so again, up to 3 more times, with a deadline of April 1.

That’s just 15 days away! A 100% match is a rare opportunity and we sure hope to take advantage of this generous pledge!

Our next goal is $31,800 - can YOU help us reach it? Please donate here to the Jacj Cuisi GlobalGiving page, to double your impact and support this huge project.

Thank you for turning the “Land of Dreams” into a reality!

Dear CIWY Supporters,

We created this page on GlobalGiving to seek support for CIWY’s rescued animals, back before there was a Covid crisis, the worst Amazon fires ever seen, and an urgent need to move Machia’s animals to Jacj Cuisi.

We want to thank you for supporting CIWY’s primary mission, the heart of what we do: rescuing and caring for wild Bolivian animals who have fallen victim to illegal trafficking. Your donations have helped us provide the best care possible to over 500 magnificent animals. THANK YOU!

Several of you are monthly donors – contributing a little bit every month to help provide steady income for our work. This is a huge help and we really appreciate you!

With gratitude,

The CIWY and FIWY teams

PS. We hope to see you on Giving Tuesday, coming up on November 30! Donations up to $2,500 USD per unique donor will earn Incentive Funds from GlobalGiving!

Dear Supporters,

What a year it has been for CIWY, and it's only July!

You may have heard our big news, that CIWY will be leaving Machia Sanctuary, which sits on government-owned land, and operating only 2 sanctuaries from now on: Ambue Ari and Jacj Cuisi (both owned outright by CIWY).

We will be transferring 167 rescued animals from Machia to Jacj Cuisi over the next year. We believe this will be a positive change – the animals will have more space (300 hectares) in more pristine jungle at Jacj Cuisi -- but the transition poses a great financial and logistical hurdle.

The team has done an amazing job mobilizing resources and creating a transition plan. We have already successfully completed the new Albifrons Area and moved the “A-team” (White-fronted Capuchin Monkeys) safely across the country and into their new home. Check our social media to watch their bus trip and arrival!

We are reaching far and wide to raise the funds needed to complete this ambitious project and continue providing the best care possible to all the rescued animals. We are deeply grateful to all of you for supporting our work, especially the monthly donors who help us cover the regular care costs of the animals.

Some of you are new to CIWY, becoming a supporter after reading Laura Coleman's wonderful book The Puma Years, which was published a month ago. The recent surge of donations helps us breathe a little easier. Laura's memoir about her time at CIWY was an instant best seller on Amazon and continues to top the charts for ‘Travel’ and ‘Biographies by Environmentalists’. If you haven’t read it yet, check it out. Jane Goodall said “You will love this book” and we agree!

Thank you all and be sure to follow us on facebook or Instagram for lots of exciting things this month!

Kindest regards,

Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY) and Friends of Inti Wara Yassi (FIWY)

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for standing by Bolivia’s rescued wildlife through CIWY’s ups and downs. Many of you give monthly donations, and that support has been crucially helpful in maintaining daily care for our 500+ animals.

Friends of Inti Wara Yassi, CIWY’s UK charity arm, has published its first annual report. Check it out here for a recap of 2020. You’ll see that funds from online GlobalGiving campaigns and other individual donations have grown immensely in recent years. Because there are so many of you out there, who care about our animals, even your smallest donations help contribute to CIWY’s largest sources of funding. YOU really do make all our work possible!

We hope to see some of you in Bolivia as international travel becomes possible again. We also hope to see you online next week for GlobalGiving’s “Little by Little” campaign. It’s a great time to give those “little gifts” – donations up to $50 will earn matching funds from March 8-12! We’ll remind you on social media when it starts.

Sending you all the best wishes and much gratitude.

Hasta pronto,

The CIWY and FIWY teams

Dear CIWY Supporters,

Thank you for donating to this GlobalGiving campaign, which we created last December to support CIWY with $12,000 in 2019. You and 104 other donors raised $11,022, plus more than $1,000 in matching funds from GlobalGiving! This provided CIWY with an extra $1,000 per month to care for over 500 rescued animals at the three sanctuaries in Bolivia.

CIWY has faced some huge challenges this year, and we are quite literally in crisis mode as we look towards 2020. You are probably aware of the socio-political turmoil ensnaring Bolivia right now. The consequences of this situation have rippled through the country and threaten the continued operation of CIWY’s sanctuaries.

Food prices have increased by up to 5 times the normal cost (and we have large animal diets to sustain). Road blockades have restricted the arrival of food, supplies, and volunteers. Travel advisories have also deterred many volunteers from entering the country, bringing CIWY’s volunteer numbers to an all-time low. This means CIWY’s income is also low, just as operating costs have multiplied by 5.

Please help CIWY survive the coming months with a contribution on Giving Tuesday. We hope to raise $15,000. All donations made on December 3 will earn matching funds from GlobalGiving. It starts at Midnight ET/ 1am Bolivia/ 5am UK / 5pm Melbourne. We’ll post a reminder on facebook!

Here’s a link to the campaign: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/help-ciwys-animals-survive-crisis-in-bolivia/

Mil gracias,

The CIWY and FIWY teams
