Today many of the team focused on the threatened queñua (Polylepis spp) forests of the Puina valley. The highest forests of the Andes reaching above 4,350 meters above sea level, across much of the Andes they are threatened by fire, as well as use of fuel for cooking. Madidi and neighboring protected area, Apolobamba protect some of the last significant patches that harbor unique species of plants and animals including at least two habitat endemic bird species that have both been registered by the team this week: the royal cinclodes (Cinclodes aricomae) and the ash-breasted tit-tyrant (Anairetes alpinus).
