A few days after our arrival in Bolivia (Franz Josef Kerkhoff and I) travelled together with Maribel Añez to Santa Rosa de la Roca and from there onward  by jeep to the 500 hectares of land ( primeval forest and a lake), which was acquired in the year 2010 and called “Laguna pantanosa”, because the lake is swampy in some parts, this being a great advantage for wildlife there, because hardly any hunter will dare to enter such an area. Where primeval forest still exists most of the terrain is flooded  during the rainy season, thereby being of little economic value for the local population.

There we saw many beautiful butterflies, orchids on tree trunks and on branches and the air was filled with the voices of birds. Thanks to the seasonal floodings the untouched enchantment of the landscape has been preserved. With the aid of our members and patrons we hope to be able to keep it that way.
