Catatumbo moist forests

WWF Abstract

The Catatumbo Moist Forests ecoregion reaches across the southern Maracaibo Basin in the northern Andean foothills, representing some of the northernmost Andean moist forests. Two mountaintop patches of this moist forest ecoregion also rise like islands above the surrounding dry forest, one to the east of Lake Maracaibo and another along the lake’s southern rim. These moist forests meet dry forests at lower elevations to the north and blend into montane forests at higher elevations to the south and west.
