We have been financially supporting local communities such as Wayúu tribes, in the north of Colombia, Guajira region, in order to sterilize feral dogs and cats to prevent them from reproducing massively, as you know, cats have a severe impact on the populations of birds, so with this we act with the objective of controlling in the medium term the deaths of birds caused mainly by attacks by cats, and keeping these populations of wild animals under control, since these communities do not have the economic resources to feed them and neither to sterilize them.
