The Creative Application of Llamas to the Problem of Global Warming
Enter the llama.
Llamas are being used to transport thousands of hatchlings to a new, cooler lake at a higher elevation where hopefully a new habitat will be established. "Because the route to the lake is so rocky and uneven, it was impossible to use conventional transport like a 4x4 motorbike or landrover. So, the fish were given a ride during part of the two-hour trek by sure-footed llamas from a local charity. The journey was finished by fisheries officers on foot to ensure none of the smarts were spilt."
