HELP! We are in emergency due to flood
HELP! This message goes to any animal lover and everybody who cares about nature conservation. .
ONCA (Organization for the Natives and the Conservation of the Amazon) is a Wildlife rescue center in the Amazon jungle located in between Madidi national park and Pilon Lajas natural park. Actually, ONCA takes care of one Jaguar, one Margay, 20 capuchin monkeys, 7 spider monkeys, three Howler monkeys, 5 squirrel monkeys and 4 Coatis. All them rescued from illegal wildlife trade.
Last week a huge flood came through the Beni river resulting in the devastation of all the area. Here at ONCA we lost almost everything we have been working for all these years. All animals and people are okay but almost everything is destroyed. The veterinary installations are ruined, the dorms for volunteers and the kitchen are gone and most of the cabins have been destroyed by the water. The staff and the volunteers who stayed worked 72 hours day and night non-stop to safe all the animals but much more needs to be done. They now need to fix everything as quick as possible in order to guarantee their health, the safety of the animals and the future of the center.
Global warming is quickly affecting our rainy seasons and we expect this to happen again. Our main priority is to have ONCA flood proof so we can have a safe place for all the animals. Everything must be built on higher ground so that if another flood comes, everything will not be destroyed again.
We have to build urgently a new quarantine (8,000€), enclosures for the Jaguar and Margay (8,000€) and new kitchen and dorms (4,000€). The value we put here is approximately half of what we need, but this goal is the minimum of what we need to buy the materials to be able to construct.
