BIODIVERSITY OF THE BOJONAWI NATURAL RESERVE.

Hello, I am Ivan Mikolji, river explorer and audiovisual artist.
I am extremely proud to be part of the book
BIODIVERSITY OF THE BOJONAWI NATURAL RESERVE.
My contribution to this wonderful book was to photograph the various species of flora and fauna found in the reserve. Show how they live underwater, in savannas and on granite outcrops.
We documented species that have never been photographed or filmed in their natural habitat.
As in all expeditions led by Carlos Lasso, he was accompanied by a highly qualified group of people, all working together for the conservation of the environment.

This book, written in Spanish, contains the results of these studies.
