Colombian Soldiers Lead Ecological Mission in High-Altitude Wetlands – January 25, 2018
Innovative army program aims to restore country's war-torn landscapes, safeguard drinking water supply
Camouflaged soldiers move through the dense fog of Colombia’s Páramo de Sumapaz, a high-altitude wetland overlooking the capital, Bogotá. Although this wetland has been the site of years of intense fighting between government and rebel forces, the soldiers posted here are not engaged in military action — they’re gardening.
