Parques Nacionales Naturales de Colombia (National Parks of Colombia) 

Colombia is one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world, harboring more than 15 percent of all the planet’s species. The national park system is made up of 59 protected areas (14.2 million hectares), home to a variety of ecosystems. From wet and dry tropical forests to arid areas and beaches, as well as mangroves and marine areas, the country exemplifies biodiversity. Amazon protected areas represent 70 percent of the entire park system. Many of the protected areas include museums, archaeological remains and cave paintings related to pre-Columbian cultures. The parks unit aims to conserve the fascinating fauna, flora, and culture and archaeology, and to maintain the biological diversity of the country’s national parks.
