Colombia’s Biodiversity

Colombia is the second most biodiverse country on the planet. There are five geographic regions; the Andes, the Caribbean, the Pacific coast, the Amazon and the eastern plains.

The country’s marine ecosystem contains over 3,000 species of fish, coral reefs, mangrove forests, lagoons, prairies, beaches and cliffs. There are 53 million hectares of natural forests and 22 million hectares of savannas, arid zones, wetlands, and snow peaks. Fourteen percent of the country is comprised of protected national parks, natural parks, and sanctuaries.

Colombia offers amazing opportunities to experience these natural wonders, whilst monitoring activity to ensure that there is minimum impact to the local ecosystem, and that respect is shown to local people and cultural heritage. Uncover Colombia is committed to upholding these values.
