The natural beauty of Latin America is rife with exotic species that are as much of a part of the inspiration for tourism as the regions in which they reside. For a plethora of reasons, the population of many of the most celebrated species that are a vital part of their respective eco-systems is becoming threatened in these areas.
It is important that we not only see these creatures for their inherent beauty and mystique, but also the important role that they play in some of the most wonderful geographical locations in the world.
In order to bring more awareness to these animals and the dangers their kind face, we created this infographic as a list of some of the most popular endangered species throughout Latin America, as to not take their presence on our planet for granted.
