Colombia: La Lindosa, Capricho, Cerritos

Rapid Biological and Social Inventories Report 29

In October 2016 a multidisciplinary team of geologists, biologists, social scientists, and local residents explored the rivers, forests, and human communities in and around the La Lindosa, Capricho, and Cerritos outcrops in lowland Amazonian department of Guaviare, Colombia. This report describes the current status of the region’s plant, fish, amphibian, reptile, bird, and mammal communities, as well as the present-day and historical use of its rich natural resources by human communities. At the heart of the report is a series of recommendations for protecting these extraordinary outcrops and the region’s natural resources in partnership with local residents. The text is in Spanish, with an executive summary in English.
