A ten-year joint effort by American Bird Conservation, Fundación ProAves and Fondo para la Acción Ambiental y la Niñez has led to the establishment of a sizeable ecological corridor connecting already protected areas in the Yariquíes National Park and the Cerro de la Paz, in northern Colombia. This corridor is expected to benefit many endangered bird species including the Cerulean Warbler (Setophaga cerulea), whose global population has decreased by at least 70% since 1966.
