Haementeria ghilianii (Amazon leeches)

Does anyone have suggestions as to how our lab could obtain some 
Haementeria ghilianii (Amazon leeches). We are interested in isolating one 
of the enzymes which degrades fibrinogen. There is no commercial source 
for the enzyme so we are contemplating growing our own leeches and 
purifying the enzyme ourselves.  

Thanks for your help,
