A new reserve in Colombia will protect the Cundinamarca Antpitta

The Reserva Natural Refugio Tororoi covers an area of 180.52 hectares of cloud forest on the eastern slopes of the Andes, southeast of Bogotá, Colombia. Created through a partnership between the American Bird Conservancy (ABC), the Fundación Camaná Conservación y Territorio, the direct investment funds of the Conserva Aves Initiative, and the Herrera family, the reserve protects critical habitat for the endangered Cundinamarca Antpitta(Grallaria kaestneri).

The population of these birds is small, ranging between 330 and 800 individuals, as is its distribution area, making its conservation extremely important.

Conserva Aves protects territories of life. It is an innovative, bold and visionary conservation initiative led by American Bird Conservancy, Audubon, BirdLife International and the Latin American and Caribbean Network of Environmental Funds (RedLAC) to create, consolidate and manage subnational protected areas for the benefit of birds, biodiversity and local communities throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

This Initiative is funded by the Bezos Earth Fund, which focuses on conservation and habitat protection in the tropical Andes of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru.
