Cauca Valley montane forests

WWF Abstract

Visitors to this montane ecoregion might be treated to an unusual chorus of frogs. Nearly 100 different frog species join many mammals, birds, and butterflies to make the mountains surrounding the Cauca Valley one of the most diverse areas in central Colombia. However, the region has lost large tracts of forest cover, especially at lower elevations. Only small remnants of native vegetation remain.
