About

Pampa Galeras – Barbara D’Achille is located in the Lucanas Province of the Ayacucho Region in Peru. Its main purpose is to protect the habitat of the vicuña.Chaku festivalEvery June 24 at the Chaku festival hundreds of people trap the vicuñas with a big fence and a long rope. The vicuñas are driven into a corner where they can be sheared after the performance of a dance called Supaypa wasin tusuq and an Inca ceremony. The dance and the ceremony are probably performed as a pledge to the gods that the gods will agree with taking the crop. Vicuñas give the most precious wool.
