Why we love alpacas
Alpacas are integral to their native South American environment, a main income source for Andean Highland communities, soft on the earth, not to mention alpacas are adorable!
The bad news
Due to an increasingly erratic and hostile climate, the alpaca population of South America is dying at an alarming rate. From floods to freezing temperatures, to drought, life in the Andes has gotten more extreme, impacting the health of native camelids like the alpaca. This affects not just the alpaca, but also the communities of indigenous people who rely on them for fiber, and for income.
