Day 5 Facebook #challengeonnaturephotography

Day 5 of 7 in my ‪#‎challengeonnaturephotography‬! I’m bending the rules a little today, by posting 2 photos to promote wildlife and habitat conservation in a country dear to my heart. Panama houses an incredibly rich biodiversity, including a remarkable number of bird species who spend at least part of the lives on this narrow, beautiful isthmus connecting North and South America. Panama’s indigenous communities are some of the most important stewards of this biodiversity. My photos are of a roadside hawk in Darien Province (the largest remaining lowland tropical forest in Panama) and a coatimundi posing above the clouds of Volcan Baru, which soars above the cloud forests of La Amistad International Park. While Panama has instituted important biodiversity protections, there is much more that needs to be done. My nomination today is Rodriguez Ariel, who has a wealth of photos that beautifully and poignantly highlight Panama. Ariel, this challenge is to post a new photo (or, 2 as I’ve done today) each day for 7 days, and to nominate a new friend each day to do the same.
