Its geographic position, its two coasts and its mountainous system, which provides numerous and varied micro climates, are some of the reasons that explain this natural wealth, both in terms of species and ecosystems. The more than 500,000 species that are found in this small country represent nearly 4% of the total species estimated worldwide.
