Description

Chiribiquete National Natural Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional Natural Sierra de Chiribiquete) is the largest national park in Colombia and was formed in 1989. This park occupies 12,800 square kilometres (4,900 sq mi) and includes the Serranía de Chiribiquete mountains and the surrounding lowlands which is covered by tropical moist forest, savannas and rivers.

In August 2013, Chiribiquete National Natural Park was expanded from the previous 1.2 million hectares to 3 million hectares. The announcement was made a few days after Ecuador decided to explore for oil within its protected natural parks in the Amazon region.
