Ecuadorian Cloud Forest Biodiversity

Ecuadorian Cloud Forest Biodiversity

I will share my sightings from the Reserva Las Gralarias cloud forest in Mindo, Ecuador and encourage other naturalists to add their sightings from cloud forests of Ecuador. Cloud forests are not commonly known to the general public and the goal of this mission is to express and celebrate their magical biodiversity so that we might aid in their conservation and protection as well.

Cloud forests are magical environments filled with some of the world's most enchanting orchids, songbirds, frogs and other forms of wildlife that seem to have originated in a fairy realm. Extremely high levels of endemism are found in these montane tropical forests and many biological wonders still remain to be discovered.
