Listen on:


Alejandra Arias Stella is the co-founder of the Llama Pack Project, an organization in the Urubamba Mountains outside of Cusco, Peru which creates opportunities for indigenous populations to raise llamas and work in tourism. They teach Andean villagers to breed and raise llamas to serve as pack animals for tourist treks in the area. Because llamas are more suited to the local environment, they are more environmentally friendly than mules, which have been forced on the native people ever since the Spanish conquest.

You can donate to their project, you can find them on Global Giving.
