Earth Day Photo Contest: La Senda Verde
by Jon Derksen (Art of Adventure)
This image was captured at La Senda Verde in the North Yungas, a habitat for rescued exotic pets (many of them from La Paz). Vicky Ossio (on the right!) is one of the founders and caretakers. I was deeply impressed by the way the animals interacted with humans, especially this one marimono (spider monkey), which acted exactly like an infant in her arms. If you get the chance, La Senda Verde is well worth a visit. It's an amazing cause!
