Cordillera La Costa montane forests

WWF Abstract

Across northern Venezuela stretches a desert landscape of cactus and mesquite bushes. But the desert is punctuated by islands of lush montane forests known as Cordillera de la Costa or "coastal mountains range", adding an archipelago of diversity to an otherwise dry sea. These isolated mountain patches provide places of refuge for many species.
