Surprised, I discovered this wonder hasn’t been posted (at least that is what the search engine says). It’s probably one of the last places in the world still respected by us (more or less).

Right in the middle of the Amazon Jungle, between Peru and Brazil is a place called “Sierra del Divisor”. It’s the only chain of mountains in South America not connected to the Andes, a unique place for numerous reasons I must say.

Sierra del Divisor had been studied for the first time just a few years ago, in 2005, by a multi-national expedition (USA, Peru, and Brazil).

In August of 2005, scientists conducted a rapid inventory in Sierra del Divisor, a mountain range that rises up dramatically from the lowlands of central Amazonian Peru.

The full report in english is here : fm2.fieldmuseum.org...
It was a quick trip; they made a first overwhelming report about the biodiversity of the area and also found some endemic species, in other words, with an habitat restricted to this area.



Finally, I also want to mention Sierra del Divisor is home of many ethnic groups, some of them voluntary opted to stay isolated (no wonder why).

Kewl. Thanks for posting this. The PDF is interesting but a bit of a long read!

Yeah, reading the titles today I've seen doom & gloom, hate and fearmongering mostly here. So I thought a change would be good. Sadly, I predict little attention to this thread due the natural morbid interest for fatalism here.
