Magdalena Valley montane forests

WWF Abstract

The Magdalena River flows through Colombia's northern Andes, crossing several kinds of ecosystems. If you were to follow the river upstream, you'd travel through the swamps and wetlands of the Caribbean lowlands, to the Magdalena Medio rainforest, finally reaching the Magdalena Valley Dry Forests ecoregion. This dry forest ecoregion is home to many different kinds of plants and animals, from cactuses to Colombian weasels to tropical rattlesnakes to parrots.
