Megadiverse countries
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




The 17 countries identified as megadiverse by Conservation International
The megadiverse countries are a group of countries that harbor the majority of the Earth's species and are therefore considered extremely biodiverse. Conservation International identified 17 megadiverse countries in 1998.[1][2][3] All are located in, or partially in, the tropics.


In 2002, Mexico formed a separate organization focusing on Like-Minded Megadiverse Countries, consisting of countries rich in biological diversity and associated traditional knowledge.[4] This organization does not include all the megadiverse countries as identified by Conservation International.
