Dublin (October 15/2021). Colombia participated in the tenth edition of the ISLA Festival organized by the Cervantes Institute in Dublin through the virtual conversation 'Talking Walls: Chiribiquete' presented by author and scientific journalist Ángela Posada-Swafford.
With the support of the Embassy in Ireland and within the framework of the Plan for the Promotion of Colombia Abroad, the Colombian author spoke with journalist Olive Heffernan about the Chiribiquete Natural Park from the perspective of science, conservation and art.
In her talk, Ángela highlighted the enormous biodiversity of Colombia and the great responsibility that entails its conservation.

The Park is the largest extension of protected tropical forest globally and its name means "hill where it is drawn" in the Karijuna language.
