The Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi (CIWY) is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 1992 that manages three wild animal refuges across the Bolivian Amazon, dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of wild animals that are repossessed from poachers or dropped off by owners that can no longer care for their non-domestic pets. CIWY currently cares for over 600 animals – including species such as howler monkeys, jaguars, pumas, tapirs and macaws.

Alongside a handful of permanent Bolivian staff, CIWY relies on international volunteers to assist in the care and environmental enrichment of the rescued animals. Whenever possible, the animals accepted into CIWY’s care will be reintroduced into the wild; if re-release is not an option, they will be given long-term sanctuary (a new start in life and a chance to recover from their previous traumas) at one of CIWY’s refuges.

CIWY is also devoted to the education of environmental awareness among the country's youth.
