Peru Vicuna Shearing Festival Photo Gallery

Chanting and shaking a long rope with colorful streamers, hundreds of villagers march side by side, as they close in on a pack of vicunas as part of the national chaccu, or annual roundup of vicunas, in the Pampa Galeras National Reserve, in the Peruvian state of Ayacucho, Wednesday, June 24, 2015. The annual roundup in which vicunas are captured, shorn and released is both an expression of indigenous culture and a triumph for an international campaign to save the once-endangered animals.
