Key species

The Lora Carirosada ProAves Reserve was created in 2014 to protect the habitat of the Lora Carirosada (Pyrilia pulchra) and the Moustached Tanager (Tangara johannae), species classified as Least Concern (LC) and Near Threatened (NT), according to the IUCN Red List.

Location and area

The Nature Reserve is located in Carmen de Atrato, departement of Chocó. The entrance to the Natural Reserve is through the main Carmen de Atrato-Quibdó road, up to kilometer 70 (See map).

Ecosystem

The Reserve has about 400 ha of extension, dedicated to the conservation of one of the most biodiverse sites in the country, such as the Chocó Biogeographic humid forest. The acquisition of this land will help to consolidate a safety zone for the protection of biodiversity, against rapid and unsustainable colonization and the loss of original vegetation cover of the humid forest.
