Local Guild of Llama Breeders

Local Guild of Llama Breeders

The Guild of Llama Breeders is the result of several years of work with local community members that are willing to make a change.

Each community has created their own Local Guild of Llama Breeders to help protect their mountain ecosystems and generate sustainable development within their villages by organizing their efforts in alliance with the Llama Pack Project, to improve their native llamas in order to provide pack services for the growing tourism industry in a responsible, organized and inclusive way. 

Each guild advocates about the importance of protecting water resources, flora and fauna in their communities in order to preserve the Urubamba mountain range, that is highly sensitive to climate change.

Llama Pack Project facilitates workshops, training and mentoring in the areas of: llama breeding, animal health, agricultural production, water management and tourism skills and works to keep guild members motivated, united and open to inter-community collaborations.
