In 2006, the world's leading hummingbird photographer, Luis Mazariegos, visited La Mesenia, an isolated village in Colombia's western Andes. He had no idea that besides taking a picture of the recently rediscovered glittering starfrontlet (Coeligena orina), he would find a place that hosts overwhelming biodiversity. The forests here, spanning altitudes from 1,700 to 3,170 meters (5,600 to 10,400 feet), are permanently covered in clouds due to high humidity and are home to 374 known species of birds, 183 mammals, more than 600 plants and 5,000 insects, and other invertebrates.

... 'We must give isolated populations a chance to meet each other. Reforesting areas with native trees and reconnecting fragmented landscapes is the most cost-effective way of protecting species,' says Stuart Pimm, a world leader in the study of present-day extinctions and Doris Duke professor of conservation at Duke University. Pimm's NGO, Saving Nature, teamed up with Mazariegos's Hummingbird Conservancy to create a 6,000-hectare (14,800-acre) reserve.
