Join us for a morning of yoga, dance and Bolivian culture in an event to fundraise for the injured wildlife during the fires in the Amazon.
About this Event
Let’s Start to Heal
Fundraiser for the Bolivia Amazon.
2019 saw the worst fires on record in the Amazon Basin. While the media was largely focussed on Brazil, Bolivia saw over 40% of its entire forests burnt. This is an area of over 5.3 million hectares, bigger than the size of Costa Rica. The worse hit area in Bolivia is the tropical dry forest of La Chiquitania in the department of Santa Cruz. It is the last great tropical dry forest on earth, one of the most biodiverse areas on the planet and home to many indigenous communities.
The scale of the animal loss was overwhelming. It is estimated that over 2 million animals died because of the disaster. Many animals were left badly burnt, injured and some are still recovering. We are organising this fundraiser to support the La Senda Verde Wildlife Sanctuary. The sanctuary needs more veterinary supplies and funds to continue their amazing work. They are nursing countless animals back to health or showing them kindness in their last moments.
In collaboration with 42 Acres and Action for Bolivia, we are bringing this fundraising event where you will do yoga, meditate and learn more about Bolivian Dances.
