Nature Galapagos Ecuador
Ecuador is considered one of the most bio diverse countries in the world. Despite its small territory, it is home to 10% of the world’s plant species, 8% of its animal species and 18% of its bird’s species.
Both its flora and fauna, that inhabit the 4 regions of the country: the Galapagos Islands, the Pacific coast, the inter-Andean region or sierra and eastern or Amazon, are so extraordinarily diverse that they have led Ecuador to become a heterogeneous country, where a privileged life is possible.
The distribution and differentiation of areas of life in different regions of Ecuador such as its tropical coasts, immense jungle forests, mountain ranges and the confluence of cold and warm ocean currents have produced a wide variety of environments.
It is important to mention that Ecuador is known for its Natural Parks and Reserves; some of the most known are the Cotopaxi, Antisana, Machalilla, Yasuni and Llanganates Parks, which can be visited on short trips.
