⚽️ It’s Day 4 of #Y4WC’s #WorldCupOFWildlife and it’s a #ConservationGoal for Peru’s national animal, the Vicuña (Vicugna vicugna). 🇵🇪 Just a few decades ago, this wild camelid was in danger of extinction, down to just a few thousand animals. After years of #poaching for its extremely fine wool, the international community switched tactics, and transferred parts of the population from CITES Appendix I to Appendix II, allowing for international trade in their pelts. 🌎 With no need to kill the animal to remove the wool (live sheering will do), the community-based wildlife model sprang up. Local communities began farming the animal, and the sustainably-sourced natural resource is now bringing economic benefits to rural areas, which is alleviating poverty and contributing to community development, all the while increasing the Vicuña population.
Meanwhile, truly wild populations of the vicuna still exist in protected areas throughout #SouthAmerica, and are protected through national legislation.
This success story demonstrates the relationship between conservation and local community development, the importance of supportive government policy and the need for innovative thinking in wildlife management. 😄

An amazing comeback for the species, but can #Peru do the same in its World Cup matches to come?

Let me introduce you another member of the camelid family, the vicuña. These more slender, long-legged beasts are the wild ancestors of domesticated alpacas. On Chimborazo they were roaming free in small herds up to about 4700m, but have been known to go higher.

Vicuña - “fibre of the gods” the ultimate in luxury, finest, warmest and most precious raw material in the world. Coming from the near-mythical creature from Andes Mountains of South America, it is still collected using the chacu method of the Incas- a half religious ceremony where the local community forms a human chain around the animal and then slowly closes in on them for shearing. Vicuña can only be shorn once every three years so the fibres are very rare. They also starve themselves if they are kept in captivity which means that they must be released back into the wild once the fibres have been obtained. Stay tuned for TeOli interpretation using this majestic yarn.#teoliscarf #oneofakind #bespoke #vicuna #incredible #oneofakind #luxurydesign #highend #luxurylife #luxurytravel

VICUNA
Their bodies are specially adapted to high altitudes of the Andean mountains they live at a level of 3,200 to 4,800 meters/ above sea level; their thick coat help them insulate their bodies from freezing temperatures. Since Inca times the fiber produced by vicuñas has been valued for its softness and warmth. The Incas used its wool to make garments only for the royalty. 👸Vicuñas produce a very small amount of wool and can be shorn every three years. Since the 1970s the vicuña is a protected species in Peru and its population has greatly recovered.

Before we venture of even further alway from Ecuador I want to share this photo of Vicuñas taken in Chimborazo NP. These are the wild cousins of the domesticated Llamas and Alpacas. They're pretty cool!
