VENEZUELA ZULIA ZOO 💔 .
Firstly thank you to everyone who has been donating to the fundraising link in my @a_lallie_ bio to help these starving animals. Please donate if you can. Thank you.
Update - I’m in contact with an amazing lady who lives near the zoo in #Maracaibo who has reached out to a great NGO in the area who are keen to help administer a tailored feeding plan to the malnourished big cats. They are in contact with the Director of the State-run #Zulia Zoo so a meeting should take place this week to get the required permissions for us to help. You can swipe across for our latest conversations. I should have more news to share soon once I hear back. I’m also aware that @funprodea are gathering food and supplies from locals to deliver to the zoo so if successful, we could also collaborate with them.
Sadly there is a hyperinflation crisis going on in #Venezuela right now where both people and animals are starving. Animals in all of the zoos are hungry. In #Barinas, @proanimalsvzl have spent months feeding abandoned caged animals in botanical gardens. In #Caracas at a zoo where emaciated #RupertaTheElephant resides, 50 animals have starved to death. What we are seeing with this latest footage of starving animals in #zoológicodelzulia in the State of Maracaibo who I am fundraising for is yet another example of the severity of the food crisis that’s happening in Venezuela.
Sending money to feed these animals is a short term solution that will keep them alive but given the crisis where people can barely feed themselves, their only hope for being truly saved is eventual relocation. The end goal should be to move them to a reputable sanctuary outside of Venezuela so please keep contacting and tagging all of the genuine rescues you know of to help.
