International Llama Registry
The ILR is the largest accurate compilation of lama genealogical
information in the world. The Registry is a not-for-profit corporation with the purpose of maintaining an official genealogical registry system and research services for owners of sub
species of the genus lama: llama (lama glama), guanaco (lama guanicoe), vicuna (lama vicugna) and cross-bred. It can be compared to a large library, a valuable storehouse of information, whose job is to gather and maintain accurate genealogical records. The focus is always on the expansion and accuracy of the records. Alpacas (lama pacos) are registered under their own registry, The Alpaca Registry, Incorporated.
