The yellow spider monkey - just one of more than 200 mammal species living in Bolivia's 19,000 square-kilometer Madidi National Park. The preserve is also home to a staggering 11 percent of the world's birds, like the green-winged macaw. It also boasts 300 species of fish, 12,000 different kinds of plants and countless reptiles.
