National Natural Parks of Colombia is a special administrative unit of the Colombian government in charge of the administration and management of the national parks as well as the coordination of the national system of protected areas.
Colombia’s national park system is made up of 59 protected areas, which comprises about 11 percent of the country, and which reflects a variety of ecosystems, from wet and dry tropical forests to arid areas and beaches, as well as mangroves and marine areas. In many of the protected areas there are museums, archaeological remains and cave paintings related to pre-Columbian cultures. The parks unit aims to retain outstanding values of wildlife, flora and landscapes or historical, cultural or archaeological relics; maintain biological diversity and ensure environmental stability of biotic communities, physiographic regions, biogeographic units, genetic resources and threatened wildlife species; and to protect examples of natural, cultural, historical and other events of international interest.
