Andes Cordillera, the longest continuous mountain range on earth

The Andes Cordillera is an enormous area. Containing a wide range of mammals including the vicuna, Guanaco, Llama and the Alpaca. Some other native animals include the Yellow-tailed woolly monkey, Chinchilla, Taruca, Huemul, South American fox, and the mountain Tapir. Currently, only 23% of it is protected, so this is a wilderness area where visits are important to encourage the local governments to do more to protect the area. The Andes Mountains line the western edge of the South American continent. Running from Venezuela all the way along Chile, to the southern tip of South America, crossing through Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.
