Chimalapas montane forests

WWF Abstract

High in the mountains of the Chimalapas, the largest undisturbed cloud forests in all of Central America are bustling with life. From evergreen forests to dry shrub, the variety of habitats in this ecoregion attracts an amazing diversity of wildlife. This is the northernmost range of the resplendent quetzal. The quetzal lives in undisturbed unfragmented montane forests and is an important seed disperser. Quetzals are altitudinal migrants, and migrate to lower habitats when not breeding. Many of the plants and reptiles in this region can be found nowhere else on Earth.
