WCS Bolivia has been working for many years within the
Madidi National Park to understand the diversity of life in this unique and
varied landscape. Their initiative Identidad Madidi was a large scale
expedition to discover just how diverse and important this area really is. The
research done in Madidi National park has led to the discovery of new species
as well as the understanding that this protected area is one of the most
biodiverse regions in the world. Learn from our Bolivia team about their work,
and build on your student’s understanding of science and social studies with
standards based worksheets.
