Wildlife and landscape photography from Venezuela’s jewel in the Caribbean: Margarita Island
Margarita Island’s dry forest stretches down to its crystal blue waters: it’s here that conservationists from Provita are creating a safe have for the Yellow-shouldered parrot and the island’s other threatened wildlife.
This nature reserve was born from a fishing community’s fight to save their land from destruction by mining. After years of struggling the pressure became too much and El Horcón community turned to Provita for help. In 2009, with the support from UK-based charity the World Land Trust, Provita was able to turn their land into a nature reserve – the Chacaracual Community Conservation Area.
