Through its photography, this beautiful volume gives an account of the great natural wealth of Boyacá.

A destination that will not only surprise visitors with the variety and beauty of its fauna, flora and landscapes, but also with the fascination that comes from walking through the quietest territory in Colombia, where its friendly and cordial people always make us feel at ease. home.

Emblematic and majestic are the protected areas of this vast territory. A place where the wonders of creation are present in ecosystems that range from the dry forest and the tropical humid forest, passing through the middle and high Andean forests, until reaching the uniqueness of its paramos, of which the department houses more half of what the country has.

There is no doubt that we are truly fortunate to have this type of territory, which allows us unique and unrepeatable experiences, while making us rethink our work on earth and the duty we have to care for and respect them.

This book has been published thanks to the support of the Regional Autonomous Corporation of Boyacá, Corpoboyacá, which established the Regional System of Protected Areas (SIRAP) as an inter-institutional coordination strategy to manage actions that allow the conservation and in situ protection of the strategic ecosystems of the jurisdiction.

In the last 7 years, the Corporation has intensified the study of ecosystems, the declarations of protected areas, the formulation of its management plans and the execution of programs and projects aimed at their protection and restoration.

Their work in environmental education has successfully reached the communities that reside in them or nearby, contributing to their economic and social sustainability through restoration work or their connection to green businesses such as ecotourism and the sustainable use of biodiversity. .
