You will be taken on an approximately one-hour drive south to the Colombian National Aviary.
Colombia is high among the leading countries when it comes to avian biodiversity with about 1,900 different species. Of these species, 197 are migratory, 86 are endemic and 15 are in critical danger of extinction.
Several species are endangered, including the Andean Condor, Colombia’s national bird.
Home to more than 135 species of birds, the aviary in Barú, south of Cartagena, is now the largest aviary in the country. The different environmental spheres are designed to preserve. The most impressive habitats, and also the most challenging to construct, include the tropical rainforest setting and the environments constructed for condors and flamingos. The Colombian National Aviary Foundation states its main objective is to promote and educate the public on conservation, reproduction and repopulation of the treasured Colombian avifauna.
While some of the birds, like the toucans, are able to interact with visitors, others prefer to keep their distance such as the condors and the flamingos.
After a quick refreshment break, it will be time to depart the aviary and return back to the hotel.
