YWPF have provided funding for a project run by WildCare Institute
, based in the Atlantic Forest in Misiones, Argentina, to help strengthen a ‘green corridor’ sanctuary for endangered animals, based in the Atlantic Forest in Misiones, Argentina. The funding will help in the creation of a ‘biological corridor’ to preserve the forest and create a safe haven for hundreds of endangered species who live there, including the Maned wolf, Lowland tapir and Jaguar. The project will fund a series of 18 educational and interactive workshops, led by some of Argentina’s leading environmental professionals designed to provide local communities with the skills and knowledge to improve their own livelihoods, such as livestock management, land restoration. As well as helping local communities to treasure wildlife, by providing education and alternatives to hunting and increasing enforcement measures to improve species survival.
We work with Instituto Araguaia
, who run a key project to protect giant otters who live in the Araguaia River, in the Cantao State Park in Brazil, near the Amazon Basin. They are helping through research, population monitoring, and the preservation of fish stocks in the river, to make sure the otters have plenty to eat.
