Native to South America, the Guanaco is a close relative to the domestic Llama. One of the questions we answer this week is, are Llamas just domesticated Guanacos? Tune in to fine out. These wild camelids live at the extremes in some of the most remote regions of our planet. They can be found high in the Andes Mountains of Chile and Argentina, and all the way down to the subtropical forests of Peru. These hardy mammals are one of the most unique herbivores on Earth. They are such a fun species to learn more about. Thankfully, they are classified as Least Concern, but their populations are down to about 10% of their known historical highs. They are inching towards endangered status and need our help and understanding.
Another thank you to all our Patreon supporters. We now are hosting monthly Zoom meetings with them, answering questions and getting ideas on which species they want covered. You too can join for one cup of "good" coffee a month. With your pledge you can support your favorite podcast on Patreon and give back to conservation. With the funds we receive each month, we are have been sending money to conservation organizations monthly.
