The Puma Years

Laura Coleman

Overview

When 24-year-old Laura Coleman found herself working in a Bolivian animal sanctuary while backpacking through South America, her perspective of herself and the world changed.

Coleman is a writer and founder of ONCA, a Brighton-based organization focused on promoting social change through storytelling and the arts. In The Puma Years, Coleman tells the story of her time at Comunidad Inti Wara Yassi, or CIWY, a sanctuary located on the outskirts of the Amazon jungle. After deciding to volunteer at the sanctuary on a whim, Coleman developed bonds with the fellow workers and one very special puma, Wayra.

"It is a dream, I think as I untangle myself. I don't think I've ever been in a place that has its own heartbeat. Millions of heartbeats."
