Wild Chinchillas is a group of people restoring essential habitat for endangered chinchillas while deterring further habitat degradation. Our main objectives are to educate and involve people worldwide in conservation, promote habitat regeneration, and create knowledgebase. Since 1996, we have created and distributed educational materials ranging from children’s stories to scientific publications with the help of artists, students, teachers, scientists, and zoos internationally. We appreciate and continue to utilize popular press to promote awareness of chinchilla habitat preservation in specific, and conservation in general. We work directly with the local community, focusing on creating and enhancing habitat for chinchillas on communal lands. Seeds are collected from mountains, germinated in our modest nursery, and seedlings transplanting into restoration areas. Until now, we have raised and transplanted thousands of plants. Although we work outside the National Chinchilla Reserve, we support it by compiling reports, conducting scientific training for the guards and sharing field supplies. Our partnership with the local community has strengthened our knowledge and has led to their growing support for local and global conservation. We are proud to say that people from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North and South America have aided in our achievements.
