Summary:
Sample of the winning project of the MontPhoto WWF 2017 grant. After a year of work, it shows us the reality of Chocó.
The biogeographic Chocó is one of the most biodiverse regions of the planet. More than 350 species of amphibians, 235 species of mammals, 830 species of birds and 210 reptiles that inhabit it. Unfortunately, this “hotspot” in turn is suffering one of the greatest devastations on the part of the human being, due to the large number of African palm cultivation, logging, mining and shrimp farming, which affect the natural wealth of this region.
On the other hand, reptiles and amphibians are one of the groups of vertebrates most unknown and hated by humans. Tons of myths and legends travel around the world with the consequence of the massacres of these animals, which are so important to us.

An exhibition to capture the attention of society about its beauty and importance.
