Sierra Madre de Chiapas moist forest

WWF Abstract

From jaguars to harpy eagles, these wild jungles support a wide diversity of life. These forests are home to some 750 species of plants, 22 amphibians, more than 60 reptiles, over 100 mammals, and well over 300 species of birds. These forests are also known to be home to many species of butterflies and salamanders that live nowhere else on Earth. With one of the biggest fragments of intact montane forest in all of Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador, this ecoregion is one of the country's richest and most biodiverse ecosystems. An ardent observer might spot the rare azure-rumped tanager or horned guan.
