Senda Verde

February 1, 2020

Gottfried Siebel 2020-02-01: Visit to Senda Verde
And discussion about the new butterfly house.

La
Senda Verde (“green path”) was established in 2003 in the subtropical region east side of the Bolivian Andes in South America. In a country where government, authorities and decision makers move too slowly, and where the citizens need to be inspired and educated in the value of the living forest, they founders, Vicky Ossio and Marcelo Levy knew it was urgent and necessary to contribute to conservation of flora and fauna by taking hands-on action. They founded a private animal refuge approved by the Bolivian Government; and with this undertook an amazing lifelong journey and commitment to this cause.

In
2015, LSV formed a USA non-profit organization (based in Florida) recognized as exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). This was a huge step as it assures foundations and other grant-making institutions that they are issuing donations or sponsorships to a registered beneficiary, strengthening LSV’s mission and increasing its long-term economic viability.

Over the past ten years, illegal animal trafficking and deforestation have drastically increased in Bolivia. Wildlife crime encompasses wildlife trafficking and deforestation, amongst other illegal practices. After trafficking in arms, drugs and people, wildlife crime is the 3rd most lucrative crime in the world. As a result of this, the animal population at LSV has more than quadrupled in the past five years. LSV is now a refuge to more than 800 rescued animals and 60 species.
