Route description

The scientific photography expedition of the spectacled bear in Chingaza Natural Park is an exciting and highly important project for the conservation of this iconic species in Colombia. The spectacled bear, also known as the Andean bear, is an endangered species, and its natural habitat is found in the Andes of South America. 

The expedition aims to document the presence of these animals in Chingaza Natural Park and gather valuable information about their habits and behaviors to enhance conservation strategies. Scientific photography is a key tool in achieving this goal, as it allows for capturing detailed and precise images of the spectacled bears in their natural habitat without disturbing them or altering their behavior. This expedition is a collaborative effort among conservation experts, photographers, and other professionals dedicated to protecting wildlife and promoting environmental conservation.
