Guanacos at Ranch of Hopes Wildlife Refuge

Guanacos at Ranch of Hopes Wildlife Refuge

Young Guanacos are getting caught in fencing and injured as a result. We urgently need to fund the removal of fencing and old corrals to enable wildlife to move freely without these hazards.

Sheep ranching at Ranch of Hopes Wildlife Refuge (Estancia la Esperanza), Patagonia helped establish a solid foundation of local support from the other estancias in the area, but there has been increasing evidence that the aging network of internal fences and corrals on the refuge are a deadly hazard to wildlife, especially young guanacos. It has therefore been decided to remove the sheep from the refuge and to clear the internal fencing and corrals to enable wildlife to move freely across the refuge.
