Magdalena Valley dry forests

WWF Abstract

This Inter-Andean Valley in Colombia is intersected by the Magdalena River, the largest river in western Colombia. Flowing northward to the Caribbean Sea, the Magdalena crosses several kinds of ecosystems--dry forests in its upper parts, rain forests in its middle course, and swamps and wetlands of the Caribbean lowlands in its lower course. This dry forest ecoregion is home to a variety of endemic species and is a great spot for fossil hunting.
