Colombia shuts national parks around amid drought

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Authorities in central Colombia have closed six national parks amid fears that drought caused by weather phenomenon “El Niño” could spur forest fires.

Environmental authorities in Cundinamarca, the province surrounding the capital Bogota, said the parks will remain closed until after February 12 to protect the local ecosystems from possible forest fires.
