Columbia is the 4th largest country in South America, and lies in the North west of South America. Veneuela lies to the north of Ecuador and Peru, to the west of Brazil and Venezuela (Venezuela also surrounds some of the North of Columbia). The rest of the country is on the coast except a small part of the coast where Panama connects to South America.  It should be noted that central America is part of the Northern American continent, so any areas of Columbia which lie north of the mainland are also part of the Northern American continent

Columbia is the 26th largest country in the world, with the 25th being South America.

There is a range of areas in Columbia which are of interest for those who like to see wildlife. I hope over the next few years to link to as many of these as possible.

– The most Southern part of the country contains some of the most northern part of the Amazon rainforest and is known as Amazonia.                                                                                                                           – The western edge of Columbia, runs along the Pacific ocean. This coastal region will have a specific set of wildlife. It is known as Pacifica.                                                                                                         – The Costa Norte runs along the northern edge of South America, and is largely a Caribbean region, with a Caribbean range of wildlife.                                                                                                        – Running along the coast, inland of the Pacifica and to the South of Costa Norte is Andino which hosts Columbias region of the Andes (the largest portion of the Andes).                                                  –  – – The last region is Orinoquia – Infinate prairies, mountain ranges, rivers, wildlife and cowboys. The Llanos, which are Colombias eastern plains are still undiscovered by mainstream tourism and is a beautiful destination with few tourists. This is one of the worlds richest tropical grasslands and geographically and culturally different to anywhere else, This region is one of the lesser known in Latin America. Never the less, it covers 376,000 square km and stretches through this region of Columbia and into Venezuela.

Links to areas to visit will appear below.  Please note, while it is not possible to add sightings to this map above. This is because the whole country is is a specific regional ecosystem. Over time every area will become clickable, so that you can access the ecosystem and record sightings.

Help us build up a map of where wildlife has been seen. Add any sightings of mammals that you encounter. As this map starts to be used, we will greatly reduce how long sightings remain free for anyone to see, so that hunters and poachers cannot use this as a resource. The idea is that over time we can build up an idea of exactly where we should look for them.
