The park in the Amazon rainforest is also home to a healthy population of jaguar and other vulnerable mammal species. 60 rock shelters with ca. 75,000 paintings are present at the foot of the tepuis. Their ceremonial use extends into the present day by isolated indigenous communities, some of which have no contact with the outside world.
