I am a statistic lover. So here are a few you can throw up on your personal blog or your child can write into their report on Colombia.
In 2009, there were 1871 unique, recorded avian species in Colombia. Of those, 1 has been declared officially extinct. Another 13 species are critically endangered, 31 are endangered, 52 are threatened, and 60 near threatened.
Currently, there are 15 avian preserves in Colombia. Three in Antioquia, 3 in Santander, and one each in Boyacá, Cauca, Magdelena, Meta, Nariño, Norte Santander, Quindío, San Andrés and Tolima.
If you are a birder and plan to visit Colombia, you can get a copy of a Colombian Bird list current as of 2009, (to add to your life list) here: http://www.proaves.org/IMG/pdf/Aves_de_Colombia_2009-2.pdf
