Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia.
Vicuñas are very shy animals and are easily aroused by intruders, due among other things to their extraordinary hearing. While trekking in Salar De Uyuni - the largest salt flat in the world - Vicuñas can be seen every so often if not alerted to your presence. Once endangered, the Vicuña population has recovered to about 125,000, and while conservation organizations have reduced its level of threat, they still call for active conservation programs to protect population levels from poaching, habitat loss, and other threats.
