The region known as El Caura, located in south Venezuelan jungle, holds 17% of all floral species in the entire country, and it’s also the home of 32% of national fauna diversity. In addition, seven indigenous groups live in the 5 million acre reserve. This area is officially protected by the government since it contains the oldest ecosystem on the planet: Tepuy (you may have seen it in the Disney movie “Up”). It also holds one of the most important water and forest reserves in the world.
