Bolivia’s Madidi National Park contains 11 percent of the world’s birds and more than 200 mammal species. Scientists from a coalition of conservation groups, including MacArthur-supported Wildlife Conservation Society, released a compendium of species found in the 19,000 square-kilometer park. In addition to birds and mammals, the park contains almost 300 types of fish, and 12,000 plant varieties, making it one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet.
