Colombia has more vertebrate species than any other country on Earth.

Colombia is a country of contrasts. From snowy white peaks to brilliant coral reefs, it has an extraordinary array of biological diversity, climates, cultures and people. Roughly 10% of all the Earth’s living species are found here, and Colombia ranks number one in the world in terms of bird, amphibian and butterfly species. More than 90 different indigenous communities live in Colombia from Wayuu people who live in the desert of La Guajira to the Cofán Pueblo in the foothills of Amazonia.
