Transcript of La Gran Sabana


San Rafael Gran Sabana in ENGLISH means "Great Savanna."
The Savanna is in south Venezuela and is a highly valued ecological zone.
Frog Mining is also called "Poison Arrow" because the Indians used the substance on the frog to poison the tips of their darts and arrows.
Siskin: This small bird has red and black plumage. It may become extinct in the near future because there was a time in the last century when their feathers were used indiscriminately as an adornment of hats.
Although the Jaguar is the third largest cat in the world, it is the strongest cat on the planet. It is able to catch prey up to five times heavier than it.
The largest and most commonly observed in all species of river dolphins. The Boto seems to change color; adults vary from gray to bright pink
(or a mixture of both) -and can become pinker
when very active and back to gray when
their activity decreases.
The Gran Savanna has
a beautiful geological structure called the “Guiana Shield”
which is the oldest
geological formation on
Venezuela recives most of its power from Gran Savanna’s Caroni River, using hydro power technology.
The climate
is quite pleasant, with an average annual temperature of 68 °F.

Minimum temperatures rarely drop below 50 °F. Usually, the maximum temperature does not exceed 95 °F.
The site has relatively favorable and cool winds, creating a comfortable feeling.
Climate variation is
determined by altitude and wind. The area further north is lower and is subject to the influence of winds from the east and northeast, resulting in a rainy season and drought season. The south, by contrast, is affected by wet winds producing heavy rains.
The Gran Sabana
is composed of a variety
of plants.
Forests have a diverse vegetation with trees, shrubs, vines, and other plants.
The Grand Savanna
is very grassy in some areas. Other parts of the Savanna are rocky and cannot suport life because of the acid soil.
The most important plant families are Theaceae, Humiriaceae , Ericaceae, Compositae, Aquifoliaceae,Burserace, and Sapotaceae.
(These are some key species in the Gran Sabana ecosystem)
Some plant
life can only be seen in the higher elevations of the Gran Sabana. These plants cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.
The Gran Sabana
is truly an amazing place.

Every year,
thousands of tourists visit the Gran Sabana National Park.
The inhabitants on
the island are very friendly, help people find inns and serve as guides for tourists.
The Gran Savanna
and the area around have a very large diversity of plants and animals making it an extremely exciting place to visit.
Tourists are able
to travel looking at the sites by helicopter or boats carved from local trees.
Angel Falls is about
15 times the height of
Niagara and 80% of it is free-falling and uninterrupted! During the rainy months, Angel Falls can split into 2 or more falls, each with its distinct plume.
Thank you!
