Bosques de Paz Biosphere Reserve (Ecuador, Peru) Editor Mon, 03/05/2018 - 19:49
The Bosques de Paz Biosphere Reserve includes seasonally dry forests that form the heart of the Endemic Region of Tumbes, one of the world's biodiversity hotspots. The transboundary reserve was formed by the joining of two existing biosphere reserves in Ecuador and Peru.

Fuerte de Samaipata (Bolivia)

The archaeological site of Samaipata consists of two parts: the hill with its many carvings, believed to have been the ceremonial center of the old town, and the area which formed the administrative and residential district. The huge sculptured rock is a unique testimony to pre-Hispanic traditions and beliefs and has no parallel anywhere in the Americas.

Rapa Nui National Park (Chile)

Rapa Nui, the indigenous name of Easter Island, bears witness to a unique cultural phenomenon. A society of Polynesian origin established an original tradition of monumental sculpture and erected enormous stone figures known as moai, which created an unrivaled cultural landscape that continues to fascinate people throughout the world.

La Selle / Jaragua-Bahoruco-Enquirillo Biosphere Reserve (Dominican Republic, Haiti)

This transboundary biosphere reserve includes the reserves of La Selle in Haiti and Jaragua-Bahoruco-Enriquillo in the Dominican Republic. These two reserves represent ecological corridors divided by a political and administrative frontier. Bringing them together is hoped to allow for improved environmental management.
