Chocó habitat extends from Panama, through northwestern Colombia and down into northern Ecuador. It is one of the world's wettest and most biodiverse habitats and holds many species at risk of extinction.

El Pangan

El Pangan Reserve protects over 19,768 acres (8,000 hectares) of sub-tropical forest in the Chocó rainforests of southern Colombia, one of the wettest tropical areas on Earth, seeing 26 feet (eight meters) of rainfall a year.



Giles-Fuertes

Giles-Fuertes Nature Reserve  protects one of only two tiny surviving populations of Fuertes Parrot in an area of cloud forest in Central Colombia. The encroachment of pasturelands into sensitive cloud forests surrounding the reserve further threatens key foraging and nesting areas.

Las Tangaras

Las Tangaras is one of the most diverse tropical forest sites on earth. The reserve was formed in 2009 to protect the Black-and-gold Tanager and the Golden-ringed Tanager..




El Dorado

Named after the legendary city of gold, El Dorado is ProAves’ flagship reserve and hosts the highest concentration of continental range-restricted bird species found anywhere in the world. The reserve is located in Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, an ancient and isolated massif in the extreme north of Colombia.

Lora Carirosada

Lora Carirosada Reserve is on the banks of the Atrato river and close to a proposed Regional Natural Park and indigenous reserves. The property, between 260 and 400 metres above sea level, is comprised of large areas of tropical rainforest with high rainfall and humidity.

Rana Terribilis/ Zamarritos de Pinche

World Land Trust (WLT) supports two reserves in the wet and humid Chocó forests of Colombia’s Cauca department; Rana Terribilis and Zamarritos de Pinche. The area is tropical, with hot temperatures of 26 degrees Celsius and above and humidity levels between 80-90 per cent all year round.

Titi Cabeciblanco

Titi Cabeciblanco, or Cotton-top Tamarin Reserve, in northwest Colombia protects two Critically Endangered primates: the Cotton-top Tamarin and the Black-headed Spider Monkey. Originally seven adjacent properties, the reserve was created in 2013 with funding from World Land Trust (WLT).
