Green groups expand protection over one of the most biodiverse places on Earth | The Optimist Daily

Magdalena Valley, a low land rainforest in Central Colombia and one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, is home to some of the world’s rarest animal species that are under serious threat because of intense deforestation and illicit farming in the area.

Luckily, after years of negotiations, last month two nonprofit environmental groups have managed to make a strategic purchase that blocks access to and expands the only strict-protected area in the region, El Paujil Reserve. The protected area’s main focus is species recovery, ecological restoration, and offering environmental education activities to children and adults in nearby communities.
