Biodiversity of Georgia

The Caucasus region is identified as globally outstanding for biodiversity and is among the planet's 25 most diverse and endangered hotspots 31. The Caucasus eco-region is also identified as having global significance by WWF due to the diverse number of endemic species, and the specific evolutionary processes and unique historical floral and faunal development. It is one of the World’s 221 Endemic Bird Areas. (UNDP, 2009)
Located in the heart of the Caucasus, Georgia holds the major part of the region’s biodiversity with almost all Caucasus ecosystems and habitats represented and a high number of globally threatened  and  endemic  species
