Ecuadorian children race llamas to save national park

The park, roughly 125 kilometres east of Quito, is famed for dramatic Andean vistas, and the race took place between the wetlands at altitudes nearing 4500 metres.

A llama named Rayo McQueen carried six-year-old Eric Javier Chicaiza to a win in his category. His mother, Fatima Guanotuna, said the animal was a gift to the family when the boy was born, and the two have always been close.

Nine-year-old Ibeth Santafe, three times a winner in past races, was sombre after finishing third. But she came out a winner in a llama-training contest, showing mastery over her beast.
